Today Is The Last Day To Register To Vote In The 2020 Florida Primary


Florida’s 2020 primary election is set for Aug. 18, and eligible voters have until the end of Monday, July 20, to register to vote in it or to change their party affiliation.

You can do so by visiting this website or by contacting your local Supervisor of Elections or Tax Collector’s office.

The state runs closed primaries, meaning you must be either a registered Democrat or Republican to vote for candidates in those partisan contests. In other words, independents and non-party affiliated voters will not be able to vote in the August contests.

Here are links to guides for who’s on the ballot in every north central Florida county in WUFT’s coverage area:

The registration deadline for the Nov. 3 general election is Oct. 5.
