The LWVSPA’s Voter Registration team shows up at events all over the county in an effort to make sure every person who is eligible to vote has the opportunity to register to vote.
Note: We’ve suspended in-person voter registration events due to the pandemic. However, you can still register to vote online at RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov.
Here’s what you need to know about voter registration in Pinellas County:
