The Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections reminding residents of the City of Venice and Town of Longboat Key that the last day to register to be eligible to vote in their respective Nov. 2 elections is Monday, Oct. 4.
Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner recommends that voters check their voter eligibility and confirm that their voter registration information is current before the Oct. 4 deadline. To do so, go to sarasotavotes.gov and click on the “My Voter Status” link to confirm voter status or to update records.
