Gainesville Voter Registration Deadline is Today

By

Today is the last day Gainesville residents can register to vote for the upcoming city elections on March 11.

Pam Carpenter, Supervisor of Elections for Alachua County, said the deadline is set for Feb. 10 because Florida requires voters to be registered 29 days before the election in which they will be participating.

“If someone is going to mail in a voter registration application, they have to make sure it has a post mark for Monday,” she said.

Carpenter said the registration form must have an original signature from the registering voter.

Voters can register at the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office in downtown Gainesville, or they can find registration forms on the Supervisor of Elections Office website.

Additional places to register include the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, municipal city halls, post offices and various stores listed here.

Gainesville will have its run-off elections on April 8, the same day Alachua and Newberry will be having their municipal elections, she said.

Carpenter added that Micanopy will also have its municipal election on March 11.
