How To Vote
Register to Vote
Confirm Receipt of Voter
Once your Voter Registration Application has been processed, you will be mailed a
Voter Information Card which will have your precinct number and polling location listed
as well as the districts in which you are eligible to vote.
Identify where you will vote on Election Day
You should find out where your polling location is prior to Election Day. If it is
necessary to change your polling location, you will be sent a new Voter Registration
Information Card; please make sure you destroy your old Voter Information Card when
you receive your new one.
Bring photo ID to the Polling Place
Florida Law requires that you bring a photo ID with your signature with you when you
go to the polls to vote on Election Day.
Acceptable forms of ID are:
Florida Driver's License
Florida Identification Card
United States Passports
Military ID Cards
Student ID Cards
Retirement Center ID Cards
Neighborhood Association ID Cards
Public Assistance Identification
Veteran health identification card issued by the United States Department of Veterans
A license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to s. 790.06,
Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of
the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality
Bring proof of signature
If the picture identification does not contain the signature of the voter, an additional
identification that provides the voter's signature shall be required.
However, all registered voters will be permitted to vote even if they forget to bring
identification, but they will be required to vote by provisional ballot. The canvassing
board shall determine the validity of the ballot pursuant to Florida Statute 101.048(2).
Arrive at YOUR polling place
YOU MUST VOTE IN THE PRECINCT WHERE YOU LIVE! Pursuant to Florida Law, it is a third
degree felony to vote in a precinct where you do not legally reside. In
Florida, the polls are open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
When you check in at your polling place, you will be asked for identification and
to sign a Precinct Register. The Poll Worker will then direct you to a voting booth.
If you are not sure how to use the voting equipment, ask the Poll Workers for assistance.
Do not hesitate to ask the poll workers for help if you have any questions or problems.
Get ready to Vote
Before going to your polling place on Election Day, you should familiarize yourself
with the candidates and issues that will be on your Ballot. It is okay for you to
bring in a marked Sample Ballot or information to help you make your decisions; but,
be sure that you do not display the information for others to see. REMEMBER -- VOTING
