ORLANDO, Fla. – The 2020 presidential primaries will be here before you know it.
The Florida Department of State offers a search engine so you can check your voter registration status in the state.
The search engine will ask for your first name, last name and birthdate.
Once you press submit it will show your party affiliation and polling location.
Am I eligible to vote?
Most likely, yes. But there are a few requirements you must meet, so let’s make sure.
To register to vote, you must:
