Ways to Vote

You have four ways to vote available for registered voters. Learn more about these options.

Vote Early

The Early Voting period offers you a range of days as well as the choice of a convenient voting site near your home or place of employment.

Vote Absentee

So why wait? Vote at your convenience. Request an absentee ballot today and vote from the comfort of your own home. No lines, no waiting.

Vote on Election Day

On Election Day, you can vote at your assigned polling place (found on your Voter Information Card) or you can find your polling precinct online.

Vote Provisional

A voter who is properly registered and eligible to vote at his/her precinct may vote with a provisional ballot if eligibility cannot be determined.  If you voted with a provisional ballot, check the status of your ballot with our Provisional Ballot Tracker.

Address Confidentiality Program

The Office of the Attorney General administers the Address Confidentiality Program (ACP). This program was established by the Florida Legislature in recognition that persons attempting to escape from actual or threatened domestic violence frequently establish new addresses in order to prevent their assailants or probable assailants from finding them.

The purpose of the statute is to enable state and local agencies to respond to requests for public records without disclosing the location of a victim of domestic violence.  All ACP participants over the age of 18 and eligible to register to vote may vote as Protected Records Voters. As a Protected Records Voter they can participate in national, state, and local elections without endangering the confidentiality of their location. 

For further information, please refer to the Address Confidentiality Program procedures PDF.

Wearing campaign paraphernalia when voting?

No voters will be turned away from the polls for any reason. While election laws require individuals who are campaigning to remain 100 feet away from polling place entrances, voters wearing campaign attire may enter the polling place to vote. These voters are asked to refrain from speaking about candidates or issues while inside of the polling place if they are wearing clothes depicting issues or candidates.
