Helping us keep our voter roll up to date helps ensure that we have smooth elections. Please notify us if there have been changes to your name, address, signature or party affiliation.
You must register with a residential address, because it determines the issues and candidates that you can vote on in any election. However, you can receive your election mail at any valid mailing location you choose: a post office box, personal mailbox, college mailbox, or a military or out of state/country address. All elections-related materials, including your ballot, will be sent to the mailing address you provide.
Residential or mailing address changes made within the State of Florida can be made any of the following ways:
• online Address Change Request Form
• over the phone at (813) 612-4180
• by completing a Florida Voter Registration Application
If you are moving to a residential address that is out of the state of Florida, you must register to vote in your new state. Please complete and mail us this Voter Registration Cancellation form to ensure your Hillsborough County voter registration is canceled.
If your name has changed, you can update your voter registration with a signed written notice that includes your date of birth or Florida Voter Registration Number or by filling out a Florida Voter Registration Application. If you choose to print the form rather than submit it online, you will need to bring or mail it to our office. We cannot accept the change via email or fax.
POLITICAL PARTY CHANGE
Florida has closed primaries, which means that you must be registered with a political party in order to vote in that party's Primary Election. If you wish to register without selecting a political party, check the "NONE" or "No Party Affiliation" box on the Voter Registration Application Form. You may change your party affiliation at any time, but it must be done 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 (such as school board, municipal and judicial races). If all candidates in a race have the same party affiliation and the winner of the Primary Election will have no opposition in the General Election, all eligible voters, regardless of party affiliation, may vote in the Primary Election for that race. This is known as a universal primary.
In a General Election, you may vote for any candidate, regardless of your party affiliation.
If you'd like to change your political party affiliation, you must submit a signed written notice that includes your date of birth or Florida Voter Registration Number or fill out a Florida Voter Registration Application. If you choose to print the form rather than submit it online, you will need to bring or mail it to our office. We cannot accept the change via email or fax.
Some people's signatures change over time. It is important that we have your current signature on file. When you sign a Vote By Mail ballot certificate envelope or candidate and initiative petitions, we'll match your signature to the one we have on file for you.
If your signature or identifying mark has changed, you must use a Florida Voter Registration Application to update it. The online form can be printed or you can find printed applications at our offices and public libraries. Signature updates can be made at any time, but must be received before Vote By Mail (absentee) ballots are canvassed in order to be accepted for an election. Please mail or hand deliver your signature update. We cannot accept the change via email or fax.
REPLACEMENT VOTER INFORMATION CARD
To receive a replacement Voter Information Card, please fill out a Florida Voter Registration Application.
If you no longer wish to be a registered voter with Hillsborough County, please fill out this form and mail or hand deliver it to our office.
