Alachua County Supervisor of Elections begins annual high school visits

Press release from Alachua County Supervisor of Elections

ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. — The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office will begin its annual visits to the county’s seven public high schools with a visit to Hawthorne Middle/High School on Friday, February 3. Students across the county will learn about the voting process and have an opportunity to pre-register or register to vote.

The Supervisor of Elections has conducted an annual school outreach program since 1993.

In Florida, prospective voters can pre-register to vote beginning at 16. When a pre-registered voter turns 18, his or her voter registration activates automatically.

As part of its annual school outreach program, the Supervisor of Elections Office will present to the following schools on the following dates:

  • Feb. 3: Hawthorne Middle/High School
  • Feb. 6: Santa Fe High School
  • Feb. 7: Loften High School
  • Feb. 13: Buchholz High School (Virtual)
  • Feb. 14: Eastside High School
  • Feb. 16: Gainesville High School
  • Feb. 20: Newberry High School
  • science has proven the brain does not fully develop till age 25, this should be the minimum voting age.

  • Not visiting private high schools violates Equity in the Constitution. When will someone from those schools sue?

  • Your tax money at work! Don’t these schools offer Civics Classes? Oh, sorry, that would probably require them to be able to read and write! Not sure that is taught in ACPS either!
