Florida

Step 1: Apply

Can I vote-by-mail in my state?


Yes, Florida will allow any registered voter to request a ballot. Follow the application steps below. Click here to register as a new voter or to check your existing registration. (It's always a good idea to double-check.) https://registration.elections.myflorida.com/CheckVoterStatus




Application form link:


https://dos.elections.myflorida.com/supervisors/ Every county has a different application. Select your county then click the link next to "Web Address:" This will take you to your county's website where you can find the application.




Where should I send my completed application?


Applications may be submitted:




When is the application due?


Technically, applications must be received 10 days before Election Day. (October 24, 2020) To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you send it immediately and no later than the middle of October. New voters must register by October 5, 2020.




I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the county election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. https://dos.elections.myflorida.com/supervisors/





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be received by 7pm on Election Day. To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. https://dos.elections.myflorida.com/supervisors/




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/




Can my ballot be dropped off at a polling site or dedicated drop box?


Vote-by-mail ballots may be returned to secure drop boxes at Supervisor of Elections' main and branch offices and early voting sites in your county. https://dos.elections.myflorida.com/supervisors/
