Voter registration for the state of Florida is scheduled to end Tuesday, however, the Florida Democratic Party has asked for an extension.
In a letter to Governor Rick Scott, the FDP said they fear people who waited until the last minute to vote won’t have the opportunity as government buildings close in preparation for the hurricane.
“While 11 Counties have already issued evacuation orders, it is expected that even more local governments in the area of the emergency declaration will consider closing offices and issuing evacuation orders on Tuesday in anticipation of the hurricane's landfall, also affecting the ability of these individuals to register,” said FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo.
Gov. Scott hasn’t responded to the letter yet.
