Monday is the last day to register to vote in Nov. 4 election

Monday is the last day for Floridians to register to vote in the Nov. 4 election, which includes the showdown between Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist, as well as a constitutional amendment to legalize medical marijuana.

Miami-Dade and Broward residents can apply at their respective supervisor of elections offices in person or online. Following the online portion, applicants must print out the form and deliver it along with an ID or proof of residence to the supervisor of elections office, 2700 NW 87th Ave. in Doral for Miami-Dade residents or 115 S. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Some groups don’t have to bring identification, including residents older than 65 and residents with a physical disability.

Early voting starts Oct. 20 and ends Nov. 2. The last day to request an absentee ballot is Oct. 29.

A handful of other county and state elections will appear on the ballot, along with the race for governor and the medical marijuana amendment. To view a sample ballot or find out more information, visit or
