Are you registered to vote?

Elected officials make important decision that affect how we grow, produce, manufacture and market our food across the country. Many of the decisions made in Congress, State Legislature, or even local council, affect the food bank and our ability to distribute food to the most vulnerable in our community. The Farm Bill is a great example of how legislation can and will affect our distribution capabilities.

Did you know that July 30, 2018 is the deadline to register to vote or update your voter registration for the August 28 election?

If you plan on voting in the August election and need to either:

  1. Register to vote
  2. Update your name or address
  3. Update your party affiliation

You can do so online through the Florida Division of Elections available here: https://registertovoteflorida.gov/en/Registration/Index

As a quick reminder, partisan races (such as Gubernatorial primary, Senate, State House/Senate, etc) are closed to those with a No Party Affiliation (NPA). If you are registered as an NPA, you will still be able to vote for county positions, school board and proposals that are non-partisan.

If you’d like to sign up for a vote-by-mail ballot, you can do so below through the County which you are registered in. Anyone can sign up for their vote-by-mail ballot, and once you submit your ballot, political mailers and calls will stop faster!

Don’t forget to vote on August 28th, every vote matters!
