Supervisor of elections schedules voter registration drives

Sarasota County, Florida -- In celebration of National Voter Registration Day, September 24, 2013, the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections office will be conducting a number of voter drives during the week of September 23-27.

SOE staff will be out in the community to remind people of the importance of registering to vote and ensuring their voter information is current with the elections office.

“Every year, citizens forfeit the right to vote because they do not register or they register too late,” Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent said. “In recognition of the 2013 National Voter Registration campaign, we want to highlight the importance of participating in the electoral process and give people another opportunity to register or to update their voter records prior to the 2014 election cycle,” she said.
