in 2017/Top Headlines by

The Clinton campaign is calling on Florida officials to extend voter registration deadlines because of Hurricane Matthew.

Voters in the state must register by Tuesday to be eligible to vote in the November election.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said: “We would hope a little bit more time would be given.”

Mook said the campaign is focused on ensuring the safety of residents and staff in affected states and will “get back to campaigning when it is appropriate.”

The hurricane has killed more than 100 people across the Caribbean and is headed toward Florida.
