Hi rambler,

Congratulations! Registering to vote is fairly straight forward and
you are correct, you certainly don't need a middleman. The first link
I've given you is the Division of Elections - Florida Department of
State. It's got lots of links to relevant info that you may be
interested in browsing through.  Otherwise, just download the .pdf and
follow the directions.

then forwarded to your local county supervisor of elections office.
