As Floridians shift their attentions to the 2020 Presidential and State Elections, it may come as a surprise to hear that we are much closer to election season than one may think! With a handful of local elections throughout central Florida taking place through the end of this year, now is as good of a time as ever to ensure your voter registration is up-to-date.
New to the state? Recently moved? In Florida, whether you have moved within the same county or to another county, you must update your address on your voter registration record. AAGO urges and encourages you to make sure that you have the ability to cast your vote in upcoming local, state and federal elections.
To update your registration, check your registration status, find local election dates and more, click on your county below and visit your County Supervisor of Elections Office website below.

When you think about it, all politics are local which makes it just as important to cast your vote in state and local elections, as it is for you to cast your vote in federal elections. Often, topics subject to state and local government authority pose far greater impacts on our day-to-day lives. For example, school quality, public transit, housing affordability, sales tax, and waste collections options, are all areas of local government jurisdiction.
It can be challenging to keep track of who makes what decisions, but we are here to help! If you find yourself having additional questions, comments or concerns regarding voter registration, or state and local government jurisdiction, please do not hesitate to contact us!
