Deadlines, Deadlines, Deadlines

Today is the deadline for citizens in Arizona and Hawaii to register to vote in November’s election. Fourteen more states have their deadlines tomorrow, including Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Indiana.

In Florida, Democrats filed suit against Governor Rick Scott on Sunday, seeking to extend the deadline to Oct. 18 due to the impact of Hurricane Matthew on the state. Tens of thousands of Floridians were without power on Monday morning.

The deadline in Missouri, which has competitive races for U.S. Senate and governor, falls on Oct. 12, with a handful of states’ deadlines coming later in the week. Find your state, and its registration procedures and deadlines.
