How to Participate
From the Florida Department of State website:
Or, the Jefferson County Supervisor of Elections can assist you! While there are deadlines for each election, YOU CAN REGISTER ANY TIME! The minimum voting age is 18, but 16 and 17 years olds can register, and will be sent a voter registration card when they turn 18. If you turned 17 by November 3, 2019, register no later than October 5, 2020! We recommend you register, file an address change when your address changes, and request an absentee mail ballot. With that, if for some reason you cannot make it to the polls on election day, you will have already submitted your vote. If you need more information or assistance, Contact Us.
POLL WATCHERS WANTED: AS A POLL WATCHER FOR THE FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC PARTY, YOU'LL RECEIVE TRAINING ON HOW TO ACT AS AN OBSERVER AT A POLLING PLACE on Nov. 3, how to detect any efforts at voter suppression or manipulation, and whom to call to report your observations.
