TAMPA, Fla. — National Voter Registration Day is celebrated on Sept. 20 this year and also serves as a reminder for people across the country to either check their registration status or register to vote.

According to the Florida Department of State, you must meet the following requirements to be eligible to vote:

  • Be a citizen of the United States of America

  • Be a legal resident of Florida

  • Be a legal resident of the county in which you seek to be registered

  • Be at least 16 years old to preregister or at least 18 years old to register and vote

  • Not be a person who has been adjudicated mentally incapacitated with respect to voting in Florida or any other state without having the right to vote restored

If you can check off those requirements, you can then fill out an online application by clicking here. You will need your Florida driver's license or Florida identification card issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles, the issued date of your driver's license or ID card and the last four digits of your social security card.
