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.
