If you want to cast your ballot in Florida's Aug. 30 primary election, make sure to register today.
Aug. 1 is the deadline to register or change party affiliation in time for the primary election at the end of next month. First-time voters are required to register to participate. Registered voters need not register again, but Aug. 1 is the last day for voters to change political parties before the primaries. They can update their addresses anytime.

Applications can also be found online.
