Time is running short to register to vote

If you want to vote in the Nov. 6 general election and aren't yet a registered voter, time is running short — very short.

The deadline is Tuesday.

There are several ways to register.

Registration forms are available on the Hernando County Supervisor of Elections website at hernandovotes.com. Click on "Register to Vote" on the horizontal menu at the top of the page, fill out and print the form, sign it and drop it off at one of the two elections offices:

• Hernando County Government Center, Room 165, 20 N Main St., Brooksville.

• Westside Government Center, 7443 Forest Oaks Blvd., Spring Hill.

Both offices are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

If you don't have a computer and printer, you can stop by one of the offices to complete one by the close of business Tuesday.

Residents wishing to mail in a registration form must be sure the form is complete and that the envelope is clearly postmarked no later than Tuesday. Those who choose to mail the forms should be aware that if the envelope is not clearly postmarked or if the form is incomplete, they will not be registered to vote in this year's election.

Not sure if you are registered?

Check on the website or call the Supervisor of Elections office at (352) 754-4125. On the website, click on "Check Your Voter Status" under "Top News" (left side of the page) and complete the information.

Come out to meet candidates on Monday

The Ridge Manor Property Owners Association will host its Candidates Night at 7 p.m. Monday at the Ridge Manor Community Center, 34240 Cortez Blvd.

Candidates from the following races will participate: supervisor of elections; County Commission districts 1, 3 and 5; School Board District 4; state representative District 35, and U.S. representative District 11.

Information will also be available regarding the 11 constitutional amendments on the Nov. 6 election ballot.

For information, call Carol Defilippo at (352) 583-2556.

School Board hopefuls face off at debate

The two District 4 School Board candidates faced off Saturday in their first and only scheduled debate.

The debate between candidates Gus Guadagnino and Robert Neuhausen was hosted by the Coalition of Hernando Public Service Employees, said Hernando Classroom Teachers Association president Joe Vitalo.

While it was not open to the public, video of the debate is scheduled to be posted to the coalition's website, chpse.org, by Oct. 15.

  4. Cuban media treats visit by Tampa City Council as historic event

    Politics

    TAMPA — Delegations of one kind or another have been traveling from Tampa to Cuba for years, even before President Barack Obama took steps to normalize relations between the two countries in December 2014.

    A Tampa delegation to Cuba this week was featured prominently in reports by the state-run media in Cuba, including Granma.

  5. As the curtain rises on the Straz Center's biggest shows, the spotlight is on parking

    Transportation

    TAMPA — The Broadway Series, the most lucrative shows of the year for the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts, start this week, and this year the center wants all the drama to take place on stage, not during the drive to the theater.

    With downtown Tampa getting busier at night and on weekends, city officials and administrators from the David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts have been working on ways to unsnarl traffic and help visitors find parking when there are lots of events at the same time. CHRIS ZUPPA   |   Times (2009)
