Deadline extended due to Hurricane Matthew

The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Supervisor of Elections Office at 421 S Court. St., in Bronson.

The office will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The original deadline to register was one week ago, Oct. 11, and Supervisor Tammy Jones had extended hours that day to accommodate those who work out of the county, but she will not be doing it on Tuesday due to last week's low response.

The deadline was extended by U.S. District Judge Mark Walker after Democrats were rebuffed by Gov. Rick Scott in their request for an extension due to Hurricane Matthew which struck the state's Atantic side on Oct. 7. They were among several groups that filed suit.
