PANAMA CITY – Mark Andersen says people shouldn’t miss the chance to vote in the 2023 municipal election.
As Bay County’s supervisor of elections, Anderson noted that March 20 is the last day for residents to register to vote in the April 18 election.
“The deadline is coming up and it’s important that people realize that,” Andersen said. “You can still update your address and stuff (after March 20), but if you’re not registered at this point, you won’t be able to participate.”
