WHAT IS A PROVISIONAL BALLOT?


On Election Day, if you do not bring an acceptable form of identification with signature or photo ID, or if there is any question about your eligibility to vote, you may vote a provisional ballot. You will mark your ballot just as you would normally, however, instead of putting your ballot through the DS200 Precinct Scanner at the polling location, your voted ballot will go into a "Provisional Ballot Envelope" and be delivered to our office. If your eligibility to vote can be verified, the ballot will be counted. You can check the status of your provisional ballot by following the instructions below.


  • You will be provided a written notice of your rights as a provisional ballot voter (101.048, F.S.). You have the right to present further evidence of your eligibility until 5 p.m. on the second day after the election.

  • If the reason you voted a provisional ballot is solely because you did not provide an acceptable photo and signature identification at the polls, you do not need to provide any further evidence of your eligibility in order for your ballot to count. The local canvassing board will simply compare your signature on the provisional ballot certificate with the signature on file. If the signatures match, your provisional ballot will be counted, provided you are otherwise eligible. If your signature on the Provisional Ballot Certificate is missing or does not match the one on file, you will still have the opportunity to cure the deficiency. You will need to submit to the Supervisor of Elections a completed DS-DE 210 - Provisional Ballot Cure Affidavit no later than 5 p.m. on the second day after the election.

  • If you vote a provisional ballot for other reasons, you have the opportunity to bring in evidence to your respective supervisor of elections no later than 5 p.m. on the second day after the election. The local canvassing board will examine your provisional ballot certificate, the cure affidavit, if applicable, and any and all other information and evidence, if available. The board will then make its determination based on the law.
