Supervisor of Elections Vicky Oakes reported to Historic City News that the registration books for St Johns County voters would close Monday, July 16 — marking the last day to register to vote or to change your party affiliation for the August 14, 2012 Primary Election.
Oakes offered a reminder that Florida is a “closed primary” state; which means voters must vote the official primary ballot of the same political party in which they are registered.
“Voters registered with a minor political party, or without party affiliation, may vote only on non-partisan offices such as Anastasia Mosquito Control or school board member,” Oakes told reporters.
