Voter registration deadline nears for January 31 PPP

SARASOTA, FL – Voters must be registered by January 3, 2012 to be eligible to vote in the January 31, 2012 Presidential Preference Primary, Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent announces. New voter registrations must be postmarked by January 3 or delivered in person to any supervisor of elections office not later than 5 p.m., January 3.

Because Florida is a closed primary state, a person can only vote in the primary for the candidates of the party in which the person is registered. This means that voters registered without party affiliation or in a party other than the Republican Party will not be eligible to vote on January 31.

Ms. Dent also urges voters to verify and update their registration information prior to election day. A voter may check his or her voter registration status by going to the SOE website (www.SarasotaVotes.com). Select “Voter Information” from the menu and then select “Voter Lookup” and follow the easy instructions.

New registrations, signature updates, and name and address changes may be submitted on a Florida Voter Registration Application.    

Application forms are available at all supervisor of elections offices, city halls, county libraries and offices, and social service agencies, and may be downloaded from the SOE website.

For more information, call the supervisor of elections at (941) 861-8600 or write to Supervisor of Elections, PO Box 4194, Sarasota, FL 34230-4194.
