PALM BEACH (CBSMiami) – Just hours after a federal judge ordered the voter registration deadline in Florida be extended due to Hurricane Matthew, Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced her husband will rally for her in the Sunshine State.
Bill Clinton will campaign in Palm Beach, Lee and Pinellas counties on Tuesday, the original expiration date for registration.
On Monday afternoon, District Judge Mark Walker ordered the voter registration deadline be extended from Tuesday to Wednesday. Voter registration forms will be accepted until 5 p.m. that day.
A hearing is set for Wednesday morning to discuss a possibly longer extension to register to vote.
During his Florida stops, Bill Clinton will focus on the economy and making sure Florida residents know their registration status by visiting iwillvote.com.
