The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA), a federal law, and the Florida Voter Registration Act require that university, community college, and trade school offices serving persons with disabilities offer those persons the opportunity to register to vote or to update a voter registration record at the time the applicant applies for services or assistance, applies for renewal of such services or assistance, and/or applies for a change of address. The academy will provide persons with disabilities with a preference form and if persons indicate they want to apply to vote the academy will provide a voter registration application form. Applying for or declining to register to vote does not in any way affect the amount of assistance people will receive from the academy. For persons with disabilities who choose not to contact the academy in-person the following links provide alternative opportunities to register to vote.
