After Several Complaints, Fla. Officials Say Voter Registration Website Glitch Fixed

After numerous complaints last week, Florida’s election agency says the glitches on its online voter registration website are fixed. But, if anyone sees any other issues going forward, they’re urged to report them immediately.

With the Florida primary election coming up, RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov has been touted as a way for Floridians to conveniently go online and register to vote.

They can also check their current voter registration status or update their existing registration.

But, last week, the Florida Department of State as well as voting rights groups received several complaints about the online website.

While an agency spokeswoman says it’s fixed, groups—like the Florida League of Women Voters—want the public to take a “screen capture” of the message and send it to the Florida Department of State.

Floridians can contact their local supervisor of elections as well.

The deadline to register to vote in the August primary election is next Monday, July 30.
