Vote By Mail ballots are mailed to voters within two business days of receiving the request. By law, a mail ballot request must be received no later than 5 p.m. on the 6th day prior to Election Day. Ordering a mail ballot by the statutory deadline does not guarantee that it will arrive at your destination before Election Day. We encourage voters to submit their mail ballot request well ahead of the deadline. 

IMPORTANT TO KNOW:

Florida is a "closed primary" state. That means that only voters registered with a political party may vote in that party's Primary Election. You can change your party affiliation by submitting an updated Voter Registration Application at any time, but the change must be made 29 days before a Primary Election in order to be valid for that election. All registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, may vote on issues and nonpartisan races during a Primary Election. And your party does not affect your ballot for any election other than a Primary Election.

Please note: Florida has a very broad public records law. Voter registration applications and other written communications to or from the Supervisor of Elections are public records and are available to the public and media upon request unless the information is subject to a specific statutory exemption. Email addresses are also public records. If you do  not want your email address released in response to a public records request, please contact us by mail or phone, or visit us in person. To request public records, contact the communications department by emailing  voter@hcsoe.org or calling (813) 744-5900.
