The Sumter County Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) is hosting a voter registration drive Saturday, March 17th at the Lake Panasoffkee Library from 10 AM to 2 PM. The library is located at 1500 CR 459 in Lake Panasoffkee.
The DEC will assist eligible Florida residents, irrespective of party preference, with new registrations, help make changes (address, signature, etc.) to current registration, as well as offering sign-ups for vote by mail. Paper applications for both voter registration and vote by mail will be available, as well as assistance for online registration using RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov.
Florida voters previously signed up for vote by mail should note that vote by mail choices are only valid for two full election cycles. Therefore, thousands of Sumter County voters will need to re-register their vote by mail choice prior to the 2018 election.
For questions about the event call the Sumter County DEC at 352.794.1351. For other voter registration questions call the Supervisor of Elections at 352.569.1540.
