ELECTION INFORMATION

The Florida Primary election is August 23, 2022.

Mail-in voting runs from 7/14 -7/21/2022.

Early Voting is August 13 – 20.

Mail-in ballots can be MAILED WITH A STAMP.  If you want your ballot to be date-stamped, a post office will do that.

If you drop off a mail-in ballot (paper), it does not require a stamp.

The 4 drop-off locations (listed below) to accept your mail-in ballot will ONLY BE AVAILABLE during the early voting periods.

  1. If all candidates for an office have the same party affiliation and the winner won’t have any opposition in the General Election, then all voters of all parties may vote in the Primary Election for that office. This is called a “Universal Primary Contest.” In other words, if no Democrats or NPAs run, then Democrats can vote in the Republican primary for Supervisor of Elections or County Commissioners in Districts 2 and 4.

Valid photo identification can come from:

  • United States passport
  • Debit or credit card
  • Military identification
  • Student identification
  • Retirement center identification
  • Neighborhood association identification

  • License to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to s. 790.06
  • Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality.

If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature. The ID for signature verification does not have to be from the list of valid photo IDs listed above. 

  1. If you’re concerned about your current signature not matching the one that you registered with, contact the SOE’s office for instructions at 850-892-8112.
