Collier County Elections Supervisor Jennifer Edwards helped launch the 2006 ‘Get Out the Vote’ effort in advance of this fall’s elections. Heated contests include races for governor, U-S Senate, attorney general and other state positions on the ballot. A thousand people move to Florida each day and Collier election educator Cyndi Young says the rules are different in other states. In Florida, for instance, you must register 29 days before election day.
“In some states they may have same-day registration or you can register a week in advance. But that’s just one difference here in Florida with our book closings and requirements.”
