Monday deadline nears to register, change party for Aug. 24 primary

Monday is the voter registration deadline for the Aug. 24 primary election.

Registration is required for new voters to participate in the election. Voters who are already registered to vote do not need to re-register.

The deadline to change political parties also is Monday. Only voters who are registered with a political party may vote in that party's primary. All registered voters may vote in the nonpartisan primary (judicial and school board races).

Several events are scheduled this week at which you can register to vote, update your address, name, party or signature, and request mail ballots:

Today, 1 to 4 p.m.: Spirit of Americana, Voter Registration and Voting System Demonstration, Harborchase of Palm Harbor, 2960 Tampa Road.

Today, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.: Voter Registration and Voting System Demonstration, Palm Harbor Library, 2330 Nebraska Ave.
