TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Floridians who want to vote in the state’s Aug. 30 primary election have just a few hours left to register.

Monday is the deadline to register although applications sent by mail and post-marked by Aug. 1 also will be accepted.

Anyone wanting to switch party affiliation for the primary also must act by the deadline.

There are contested primary races for the U.S. Senate as well several races for Congress that will be decided in the primary.

Voters registered as independents who want to vote in the Republican or Democratic primaries must change their party affiliation to participate.

Voters unsure of their registration status can use the lookup tool on the state election website at https://dos.myflorida.com/elections.

They also can contact their local Supervisor of Elections office or the Division’s main Voter Assistance Hotline at: 1.866.308.6739.
