Florida Offers New Voter Education Toolkit To Get Ready For The State Primary

Jul 26, 2016

Florida’s secretary of state has released a voter education toolkit for next month’s 2016 primary election.

The guide has checklists for current and new voters to make sure citizens have everything they need when arriving at a polling location.

This includes making sure you are properly registered with the political party of your choice, checking to be sure your signature is up to date and verifying that  your address is correct.

Additionally, it includes the official Division of Elections logos and branding for organizations wanting to educate voters.

Finally, the kit specifies who is allowed to vote in certain partisan contests during Florida’s closed primary election.

Secretary of State Ken Detzner says voters have a responsibility to make themselves aware of the issues and candidates on the ballot.

“It is important for voters to get prepared during this election cycle. There is a great amount of interest in this election, and we want to make sure that when voters go to the polling place that they have a positive experience and that their votes are counted," said Detzner.

Detzner encourages voters who have specific questions or concerns about the Aug. 30 primary election to  contact the supervisor of elections in their county.
