October 10, 2022 (Orlando) – If you want to vote in the November general election and you have not registered to vote, take note: tomorrow, Tuesday, Oct. 11, is the registration deadline.

The General Election is Nov. 8 and in Florida, also in Orange County, so much is at stake. Florida voters will decide whether to keep Ron DeSantis as Governor or elect former United States Representative and former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, for instance. Orange County voters will decide on several key commission seats and key questions such as whether we should have a transportation surtax and whether we should limit rent increases for certain residential units in multi-family properties.
