Are You Election Ready?



Are you registered to vote?
 State law requires citizens be registered to vote in Florida at least 29 days before an election. To register to vote, complete the online voter registration application, download a Voter Registration Application or pick up an application at your nearest elections officepublic library or tax collector office
 

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Be sure to allow enough time to arrive before the polls close. 

   Do you know where your polling place is? Your polling place for a county election may be different than your polling place for a municipal election. Use the Find Your Precinct feature to confirm your polling place. 
Note: If you have moved, be sure the Elections Office has your new address to avoid delays at the polls. You are required by law to vote in your home precinct.  

   Do you have valid and current picture and signature ID? Be sure to bring the proper ID when voting at an early voting site or your polling place on Election Day to your polling place to avoid delays. Without valid and current ID, you may vote a provisional ballot, which will be presented to the Canvassing Board to determine eligibility.

  Is your address on file current or have you moved? Call (727) 464-VOTE (8683) to make an address change within the state. Or, use the Address Change Form or a Voter Registration Application to make a change. You are encouraged to update your information prior to Election Day to help you avoid delays at the polls. 

  Has your signature changed? Your signature from your voter registration application is used to verify your identity and eligibility to vote.  Be consistent when signing official election documents, including your mail ballot return envelope. To update your signature, complete a  Voter Registration Application. In addition to the online form, applications may also be obtained and returned at any public library, tax collector office or Supervisor of Elections Office. Signature updates can be made at any time, but must be received before mail ballots are canvassed in order to be accepted for an election.
 
  Need to request a Mail Ballot? Any registered voter may vote by mail. All requests for ballots to be mailed must be received no later than 5 p.m. on the 6th day prior to an election. Return your ballot by mail or use one of the convenient ballot drop-off locations available during designated dates and times throughout the county. Check the Track My Ballot feature on this website to see when your ballot is received by the Supervisor of Elections. 
  
  Are you Early Voting? Check Early Voting days/hours/locations for upcoming elections. (Note: Municipalities and Special Districts are not required to provide early voting for their elections.) 

Do you need assistance voting? You may either bring someone or poll workers will be available to assist you at the polling place. Florida law requires some paperwork to be completed if assistance is required at the polls. If you have questions, call 727-464-VOTE (8683).
  
Do you need to use ADA-accessible voting equipment? The AutoMark ballot marking device is available for voters with disabilities or special needs - featuring an audio headset, zoom in/zoom out, background contrast, touch screen, Braille keypad, two-switch paddle, or sip-and-puff accessories. 

Do you know where to find election results? Look for a link to "Election Results" on the home page of this website to view real-time results on election night. 

Did you request a mail ballot and decide to vote at the polls instead? Bring your mail ballot kit with you to the polls and ask a poll worker to cancel it so you can vote at the polling place. If you do not bring your mail ballot kit, a poll worker will need to confirm that your ballot has not been received by the Elections Office. A voted mail ballot cannot be accepted at a polling place. 

Mail ballot voting and ballot pickup and voting in Supervisor of Elections Offices on Election Day is only permitted in the case of an emergency. A voter or voter's designee must sign an affidavit affirming that the voter is unable to go to his/her polling place on Election Day due to an emergency and provide the reason for the emergency.  




FOR PRIMARY ELECTIONS: Confirm or change your Political Party Affiliation. Your political party affiliation will determine whether you are eligible to vote in closed primary contests. Party changes may be requested at any time. Party changes requested less than 29 days prior to a Primary Election will become valid after that election. Mail a signed written notice with your political party change to the Supervisor of Elections Office with your date of birth OR voter information number; complete an online voter registration application or complete a paper Voter Registration Application with your party change.

                                                                               ***Florida is a closed primary state***
                     Only voters registered with a political party are entitled to vote in that party's primary election.
