Voter Registration and Party Change Deadlines Nearing for August 18 Primary

Government

Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner is reminding county residents that the last day to register to be eligible to vote in the August 18, 2020 primary election or change party affiliation for that election is Monday, July 20th. Turner recommends that voters confirm before the July 20th deadline that they are registered to vote and that their voter registration information is current. A voter may check his or her voter eligibility at SarasotaVotes.com. Just click on “Voter Information” in the main menu and then on “Voter Lookup” and follow the easy instructions.

New paper voter registration applications and applications for party changes must be completed, signed and returned in person to an elections office or postmarked by the July 20 deadline. Applications submitted electronically before midnight on July 20 through RegistertoVoteFlorida.gov will also be accepted. Voters who have moved, changed their names, or need to update their signatures since the last election may also complete a voter registration application to update their voter records.

“There is something for everyone on the August 18 ballot,” Turner notes, “including non-partisan races for School Board members in districts 2 and 3 and a pair of universal primary contests.”  The universal primary contests include one for Sheriff, which will appear on all ballots, and one for State Representative in House District 70, which will appear on all ballots of voters who reside in HD 70, regardless of party affiliation. “In addition, voters who reside in the cities of Sarasota and North Port will have municipal races on their ballots,” Turner said.
