Monday is the last day to register to vote in Florida’s next primary election, and in just 15 days, early voting will begin in Jacksonville.
The deadline to register to vote is Monday, July 25th. Voters will cast their ballots on August 23rd.
Florida is a closed primary state and voters must vote within their registered party’s affiliation.
