After three weeks of online voting for the new Florida license plate, the design with the solid green bars and the artistic orange forming the 'O' in the word Florida is the most popular.

A total of 50,124 votes were cast in the online contest.

The online poll represents one part of the process to select the new plate design. Before the design is manufactured, the public's vote will be factored in with input from the governor, cabinet and policy makers.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles said it needs to upgrade the basic Florida plate to a design that increases readability and features a seven-character configuration.

A committee of more than 20 stakeholders, including state agency personnel, law enforcement, tax collectors and affiliated associations participated in the development of the final license plate designs.
