Voter Registration Deadline Extended Due To Michael

October 9, 2018

The in-person voter registration deadline has been extended due to Hurricane Michael.

The Escambia County Supervisor of Elections Office will close today, October 9, at 3 p.m. and remain closed Wednesday, October 10, due to the potential impact of Hurricane Michael.

The Florida Secretary of the State issued a directive to storm impacted counties allowing for the extension of the voter registration deadline until the day the office reopened to the public following the storm, which means the voter registration deadline will be extended to Thursday, October 11 for dropping off paper applications for the General Election.

The deadline for electronic submissions through the Florida Online Voter Registration website is 11:59 p.m. tonight.
