Request a Vote-by-Mail Ballot

Any Florida voter can request a Vote-by-Mail ballot. Enroll in Vote-by-Mail by clicking the button, above, and completing the form. The deadline for requesting a Vote-by-Mail ballot is ten (10) days before the relevant election. Vote-by-Mail ballots must be received by the Elections Office no later than 7:00 PM on the day of the election. We recommend mailing your ballot at least a week before the election to ensure its timely delivery.

Vote-by-Mail enrollment in Florida expires after two full election cycles. If you have been, or believe you already are, enrolled in Vote-by-Mail, click the button, above, to confirm or renew your status.

Register To Vote Online

Any Florida resident who is eligible to vote or is already registered to vote in Florida may use the Online Voter Registration (OVR) form to submit an application, update an existing registration, or prefill an application form to print and deliver to the Supervisor of Elections office.

Users will need a Florida driver license or state identification (ID) card and the last four digits of their social security number to complete and submit the voter registration application electronically. Once an individual’s identity is verified and the application is deemed complete, a voter information card will be issued by a Supervisor of Elections office.

(Online Voter Registration has multiple safeguards in place to verify and protect a person’s identity and personal information)
