Registration Deadlines

You can apply to register to vote at any time. However, to vote in an election, you must be registered in the state by the book closing date, which is normally the 29th day before each election.

If this is a "new registration", the date a signed voter registration application is postmarked or hand delivered to your county Supervisor of Elections office will be your registration date. If your signed application is complete and you are qualified as a voter, a registration identification card will be mailed to you.

Florida is a CLOSED Primary State. When voting in a Primary Election you can only vote in the party with which you are registered when the registration books close for that election.
