On October 1, the Florida Department of State launched the state’s new online voter registration website RegisterToVote Florida.gov. The website offers Florida residents an alternative to register to vote or update an existing registration, in a manner that’s convenient, secure and user-friendly.
Florida Legislature passed law
In 2015, the Florida Legislature passed and Governor Rick Scott signed into law a bill directing the Department of State to implement online voter registration on October 1, 2017.
Florida’s 67 county Supervisor of Elections now join 35 other states and the District of Columbia that have online voter registration available to their residents.
RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov, the website for the online voter registration is offered in English and Spanish and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
At your fingertips
“Voter registration is now at your fingertips,” says Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes. “People can register to vote in the comfort of their own homes.”
Florida residents who register to vote online will need a Florida driver license or state identification (ID) card and the last four digits of their social security number to complete and submit the voter registration application electronically.
If the information cannot be validated, as prompted by the system, voters will be required to print the application from the website and mail or hand-deliver it to the Elections Office.
Send printed applications to: Broward County Supervisor of elections, PO Box 029001, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33302.
