SARASOTA - Florida drivers can now cast their vote for a new license plate design. Voting began Monday for one of four new designs.

After three decades, the standard plate featuring green lettering and an orange in the middle will be no more. New designs have black lettering and will feature an orange in various locations.

The new plates will also have watermark -- not visible to the naked eye -- that will be used for identification purposes. The new plates will also be more easily recorded by red light and toll booth cameras.
