Voter registration deadline next week

The election season is ratcheting up again as campaigns, federal, state and local, hit the home stretch with Election Day less than a month away.

The voter registration book for the Nov. 6 general election will close as of 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 9.

The office of Supervisor of Elections Linda Griffin can accept no new registrations as of that date so if you wish to vote in this year’s election and have not registered, Griffin encourages voters to do so now.

The deadline to request a mailed absentee bailout is 5 p.m. ET on Oct. 31. Voters must contact Griffin’s office at 229-6117 or come by 401 Long Avenue in Port St. Joe to make a request for a mailed absentee ballot.

On note on mailed absentees, Griffin said.

The ballot is long, with federal, state and local offices, judge retentions and 11 proposed amendments to the state’s Constitution included. The ballot is two pages, front and back.

Because of its size, to mail back the ballot will cost 65 cents instead of the normal 45 cent postage. Voters casting by mailed ballot are urged to ensure the proper postage is on the ballot when mailed back.
