Tuesday is Last Day to Register to Vote for General Election

Voters in Broward and Miami-Dade have until Tuesday to register for general election

The last day for Floridians to register to vote for the upcoming November general election is Tuesday.

Anyone 18 years or older who is a U.S. citizen and legal resident of Florida may register to vote. Anyone who has been adjudicated mentally incapacitated with regard to voting in Florida or any other state or has been convicted of any felony by any court and hasn't had their voting right restored is not allowed to register to vote.

Broward County Supervisor of Elections Dr. Brenda Snipes said the day of the deadline is the busiest day of the year.

“I don’t think there’s anytime during the day that we don’t have at least five or more people at the counter, and then all of the phones are busy as well," she said.
