How to Register

Registering to vote is a right. It is available to all persons who meet the requirements. In Miami-Dade County, there are many official agencies where you can register in person or get a voter registration application:

If you need more information regarding the closest agency, or to obtain an application by mail, please contact our office any weekday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., at 305-499-8363.

When you register to vote, an actual residence address is required by law.  If you provide a mailing service address, P.O. Box, or business address, the application will not be accepted, and can cause your registration to be declined and/or not processed in time for an election.  P.O. Box and other business addresses can be accepted as a mailing addresses only, and not as a residential address.

You may register online using the Voter Registration Application PDF  provided by the State of Florida Division of Elections. You can print out the application and fill in your information, sign it, and then send the original signed application to:

Supervisor of Elections
P.O. Box 521550
Miami, Florida 33152

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.
