Out-of-State college students concerned about voting in Tallahassee

By Alicia Jarman, News 20 at Five

Attending school in another state can already be considered a difficult task. And when it comes to voting this November, out-of-state students are left with some concerns.

“I had some concerns about voting in Leon County since I’m not registered in Tallahassee,” said Florida A&M University student Taylor Harris.

Some students may not vote due to not being informed about the new voting laws. But volunteers are taking the initiative to go out in the Tallahassee community to educate and register possible voters. Gayle Muenchow was on FAMU’s campus helping do just that.

“I’m here registering students, and letting them know how important it is to do so before October 9th,” said Muenchow.

You must be registered in Leon County to vote in Leon County. When you check in to vote, the poll worker will be looking for a photo I.D. or an official item and a signature. A student I.D. along with a credit card can be used.

This year early voting will be available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day from Saturday, Oct. 27 through Saturday, Nov. 3. If you wait until Nov. 6 to vote, you must go to the polling place listed on your registration card.
