5. Remember to update your signature if needed on your voter registration.
“Signatures are very important in the elections process,” Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent says. “The signatures on record with the supervisor of elections are used to check the signatures on absentee ballot and provisional ballot certificates and on candidate and initiative petitions.”
A voter whose signature may have changed due to aging, health, or other reasons is urged to update it with the SOE. Signature updates must be submitted on a Florida Voter Registration Application. Applications may be downloaded from the SOE website at www.SarasotaVotes.com or may be picked up in person at any of the three SOE offices in Sarasota, North Port and Venice, at other county offices and libraries, social service agencies, and many area banks.
Voters who are voting by mail (absentee) and who need to update their signatures must do so prior to start of the absentee ballot canvass, which is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, August 8.
