The Santa Rosa County Supervisor of Elections Office will be closing at noon Tuesday in order to prepare for Hurricane Michael. The closure will affect the voter registration deadline according to a press release from the office.
In Florida, registration books close 29 days prior to an election. Due to the office closing early, paper voter registration applications for the 2018 General Election will be accepted on the next full business day the office is open. The office is currently scheduled to reopen Thursday, but that date is subject to change.
Voter registration applications can be submitted online at votesantarosa.com. The deadline to accept online voter registration applications will remain 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
Address changes can be made after the books close. If you are unsure of your registration status, visit VoteSantaRosa.com and click on “My Registration Status.”
Early Voting begins Oct. 22 in Santa Rosa County. The general election will be held Nov. 6.
