LARGO - Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announced that Tuesday, Sept. 24, is National Voter Registration Day.

“Voting is a sacred privilege,” Clark said, “and we encourage persons who are eligible to participate in our representative democracy to register and vote.”

More than 82 percent of Pinellas County residents of voting age (at least 18 years old) were registered to vote for the last presidential election, while 79 percent of Florida residents were registered voters at the same time, according to the Florida Division of Elections.

To register to vote in Florida, an individual must be:

• A U.S. Citizen

• A Florida resident

• At least 18 years old, ages 16 and 17 may pre-register)

In addition, anyone who has been convicted of a felony or adjudicated mentally incapacitated with respect to voting must have had his/her right to vote restored before registering to vote.

Voter registration applications are available at any Supervisor of Elections office, Tax Collector office, public library, public assistance office, center for independent living, office serving persons with disabilities, armed forces recruitment office, or online at www.votepinellas.com.

Oct. 7 is the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 5 municipal elections scheduled in Belleair Beach, Clearwater, Kenneth City and St. Petersburg.

Clark reminds individual and organizations intending to collect voter registration applications that they must first register with the Division of Elections as a third-party voter registration organization.

The Supervisor of Elections is available to assist with voter registration activities at businesses or community organizations; please call 464-5700 to schedule a registration event.
