Vote by Mail Ballot

Miami-Dade County voters may choose to receive a vote-by-mail ballot for a specific election, or for all elections in which they are eligible to vote through the end of the second regularly scheduled general election. If you have questions, we hope our vote-by-mail ballot FAQs (Español) (Kreyòl) and the information below help you to answer them.

Remember, the U.S. Post Office will not forward vote by mail ballot to a different address. If you want your vote by mail ballot sent to an address that's different from the one on file with the Elections Department, you must send a signed written request (English & Español form or English & Kreyòl form).

Vote by Mail Ballot Guidelines

If you are presently registered to vote in Miami-Dade County you may request a vote by mail ballot online. You may also request a ballot by email, fax, phone or mail. If you would like your vote by mail ballot sent to an address other than the one on file in the Florida Voter Registration, you must send a signed written request which contains the following information:

  • Full name of voter
  • Date of birth
  • Residence address.
  • Mailing address (if applicable)
  • Voter registration number (optional)
  • Date of the election or elections for which a vote-by-mail ballot is needed
  • Signature of voter (written requests only)

The deadline to request a vote by mail ballot is 5 p.m. on the tenth day before the election. We must receive the vote by mail ballot request by 5 p.m., a postmarked vote by mail ballot request is not valid.

After you've voted on a vote by mail ballot, you can track the status of your ballot online.
