Online Voter Registration Goes Live October 1st 

Pasco County FL - Brian Corley, Supervisor of Elections
October 1, 2017 marks the beginning of the Florida Online Voter Registration System in which Florida joins 35 other states and the District of Columbia in offering an on-line option to register to vote.    

Floridians who have been issued a Florida Driver License or Florida Identification Card may use the paperless internet option in which the signature on file with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles will become the official voter registration signature which is on file.  Online applications may be used for both new registrants and existing voters who need to update their record.    

"Because of the convenience of an on-line registration system, we welcome this addition to the current paper application system," said Supervisor Corley. "Online voter registration expands access while harnessing technology to increase efficiencies and saving taxpayer dollars."
 
The implementation of the Florida Online Voter Registration system is in response to Senate Bill 228 which Governor Rick Scott signed into law on May 15, 2015. Security measures to protect the personal information of the applicants, and to insure the truth and accuracy of the applicant have been put in place.  On-line registration has been shown to eliminate common errors such as missing information needed to validate a registration application, and the misinterpretation of handwritten information on paper applications.  

Information will be available soon on our website, www.pascovotes.com and https://registertovoteflorida.gov/.
