Register to vote by march 15 for April elections
If you want to cast a vote in next month's city elections, you need to be a registered voter by March 15, Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley said. New voters must have a completed voter registration application on file by that deadline, he said. And voters who haven't cast a ballot regularly are encouraged to check their status through a new database on the elections Web site, www.pascovotes.com. From the home page, select the "Voter Registration" option from the left column and then click the "Are You Registered?" link.
