HOW TO REGISTER
You can register to vote at any time. The deadline to register to vote for an upcoming election is 29 days before the election.
Your county's website has an online registration form and instructions for submitting it to your county's Supervisor of Elections.
If you are a student in college in Florida, you can find out the requirements for registering to vote by going to Student Voting Guide. The Brennan Center released the 2012 50-state Student Voting Guide, an online resource to help students and advocates understand the diverse patchwork of state laws governing student voters. This interactive guide explains the basic residency, registration, identification, and absentee voting requirements in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Many students who leave home to attend college are often misinformed about where they are eligible to vote. This guide seeks to remedy this confusion and make sure every student can cast a ballot that counts.
The Best Colleges website provides FAQs addressing some of the unique situations faced by college students wanting to vote.
Online Voter Guide
Prior to both Primary and General elections, the League publishes an online Voter Guide at Vote411. In election years, you will see information about candidates as well as any Florida Constitutional Amendments and/or local referendum that will appear on your ballot. All you have to do is enter your address and your information will be personalized for you - showing you only the choices that will appear on your ballot.
Vote411 is done in partnership with the US and Florida Leagues, who handle the national and state candidates and amendments. Many local leagues throughout the country contact their local candidates, just as we do for those running in Lake, Marion and Sumter counties - so if you find this information useful, be sure to tell your friends no matter where they live.
