TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Tuesday, Oct. 9, is the deadline for Florida residents to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

The presidential election -- as well as elections for Congress and the Florida Legislature -- will take place on Nov. 6.

Residents must be 18 or older, be a U.S. citizen, and live in Florida in order to qualify to vote. Applications must be delivered or post-marked by Tuesday in order to count.

Groups across the state have held last-minute voter registration drives in order to sign up new voters ahead of the deadline.

Some of the places people can register include local election offices and driver's license offices.

State records show that as of mid-August, there were nearly 11.6 million active registered voters in the state.
