Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I vote in person?

  • Use this Voter Precinct Locator link to find an in-person location to cast your ballot.

How do I cast a mail-in (absentee) ballot?

  • Any registered voter in Florida can request a mail-in (absentee) ballot.

  • However, Florida law requires that mail-in ballot must be requested from your local Supervisor of Elections office no later than 5:00PM, ten days before the election day (for Primary elections, this day would be August 13). 

How can I make an informed vote decision?

  • Being an informed voter is equally as important as voting itself. Be sure to take time to educate yourself on the platforms on which each candidate campaigns; this includes their political stance, their educational background and relevant experience, if they have any history contradictory to what they advertise, and generally any public information you can gather.
