Voter registration deadline for the Primary Election is Monday

By Staff | Jul 16, 2020

The deadline to register to vote or change your party affiliation for the Primary Election is Monday, July 20.

Florida election law requires Florida residents must be registered to vote or make a party affiliation change 29 days before an election.

Florida is a Closed Primary state. In a Primary Election, voters not registered with a major political party may not have any candidates to vote for, and may only be able to vote on non-partisan candidates or issues that may appear on their ballot.

To register to vote you must use a Florida Voter Registration Application or use the Online Voter Registration to submit an application and update an existing registration. To submit an online application, you will need your Florida driver license (Florida DL) or Florida identification card (Florida ID card) issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles. Click here to access the Florida Online Voter Registration Website. Online Voter Registration has multiple safeguards in place to verify and protect a person’s identity and personal information.

If you would prefer not to utilize Online Voter Registration, you may print out a blank Florida Voter Registration Application and mail to :
