[music] Before you can vote in Florida, you've gotta be registered.

If you're not sure if you are registered already, you can check using the link in the description. If you're not registered yet, or if you've moved or changed your name since the last time you voted, you'll need to fill out a registration form.

If you have a Florida driver's license or state ID you can register to vote online using the link in the description. If you don't have a Florida ID, you'll need to mail in a paper registration form. There's also a link below where you can download and print that form.

Otherwise, you can register in person at the DMV, your local public library, or a disability or public assistance office, but you have to register by October 9th if you want to vote in the November midterm elections. About two weeks after you register, you'll get a card in the mail confirming your registration, and then you're ready to vote. One of the easiest ways is to vote absentee by mail.

You can apply to do this entirely online, but the application is different for each county, so check the link below that has all the Florida Supervisor of Election websites, find your county, and then click "absentee ballot" or "vote by mail." If you fill out the online form by October 7th, you'll get your ballot in the mail and all you have to do is fill it out at your own pace and send it back before November 6th. You can also avoid election day lines by voting early in person. Between October 27th and November 3rd you can go to an early voting location in your county and cast your ballot.

Some counties add even more days to vote early, and times and locations are different from county to county, so use the link below to contact your county's supervisor of elections and learn where and when you can vote early. If you're voting on November 6th, polls are open from 7am to 7pm and you can figure out where you're supposed to go to vote at the link in the description. You'll also need to show a photo ID with your signature on it, like a driver's license or state ID, public assistance ID, military ID, or a concealed firearm permit.

Before you go and vote, you can look at a sample ballot ahead of time on your county's Supervisor of Elections website. It will tell you everything that you'll be able to vote for this election. You don't have to vote for every sing thing on the ballot, but if you want a chance to do some research on the candidates in your local elections, it's a pretty good idea to look at a sample ballot first.

You can even fill it out and bring it with you to the poll, so you can be sure you remember how you want to vote. The best thing to do if you're planning to vote in the midterms is to make a plan to vote right now- from what day you're going to register to whether you're gonna vote in person or by mail, what kind of ID you're going to use, and where it is, even what time you're gonna go vote and how you're going to get there. Write it down, put it in your notes app, text it to your friend, just make a plan so that nothing unexpected stops you from being counted on November 6th.

There will be links for everything you need to check your registration, vote early, and find your polling in the description. Thank you for voting. [music]
