You May Not Be Eligible to Vote in the Upcoming Primary
HERNANDO – As we grow closer to the Presidential Preference Primary on March 15th, some voters are still undecided on who they think should be the next President of the United States. With this being one of the most unorthodox election cycles in recent memory, a lot of voters are crossing party lines to vote for their preferred candidate.
Florida is a Closed Primary State, according to Hernando County Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson, and that means you must be registered with your respective candidate’s party to vote in the upcoming Primary. Anderson says that 27% of Hernando County Residents are registered as NPA (No Party Affiliation) or as a member of a 3rd party. Those people will be ineligible to vote – but it’s not too late to change, says Anderson.
The deadline to change your party affiliation is February 16th and you can do so by following this link: http://www.hernandovotes.com/Voters/Voter-Lookup-Tool
You can also visit their offices at the Hernando County Government Center, located at 20 North Main Street, Room 165, in Brooksville, or the Forest Oaks Gov. Center, located at 7443 Forest Oaks Blvd in Spring Hill.
