To Register in Florida, you must be:
a U.S. citizen,
a Florida resident,
at least 18 years old (you may pre-register at 16 or 17, but
cannot vote until you are 18).
If you have been convicted of a felony, or if a court has found
you to be mentally incapacitated as to your right to vote, you
cannot register until your right to vote is restored.
If you do not meet any ONE of these requirements, you are

Where to Register: You can register to vote by completing this application and delivering it in person or by mail to
any supervisor of elections’ office, office that issues driver’s licenses, or voter registration agency (public assistance
office, center for independent living, office serving persons with disabilities, public library, or armed forces
recruitment office) or the Division of Elections. Mailing addresses are on page 2 of this form.
Deadline to Register: The deadline to register to vote is 29 days before any election. You can update your
registration record at any time, but for a Primary Election, party changes must be completed 29 days before that
election. You will be contacted if your new application is incomplete, denied or a duplicate of an existing registration.
Your Voter Information Card will be mailed to you once you are registered.
Identification (ID) Requirements: New applicants must provide a current and valid Florida driver’s license number
(FL DL#) or Florida identification card number (FL ID#). If you do not have a FL DL# or FL ID#, then you must
provide the last four digits of your Social Security number (SSN). If you do not have any of these numbers, check
“None.” If you leave the field and box blank, your new registration may be denied. See section 97.053(6), Fla.Stat.
Special ID requirements: If you are registering by mail, have never voted in Florida, and have never been issued
one of the ID numbers above, include one of the following with your application, or at a later time before you vote:
1) A copy of an ID that shows your name and photo (acceptable IDs--U.S. Passport, debit or credit card, military
ID, student ID, retirement center ID, neighborhood association ID, or public assistance ID); or 2) A copy of an ID
that shows your name and current residence address (acceptable documents--utility bill, bank statement,

of the active uniformed services or merchant marine who is absent from the county for active duty, or a spouse or
dependent thereof, or are currently living outside the U.S. but otherwise eligible to vote in Florida.

only vote for their registered party’s candidates in a partisan race on the ballot. In a primary election, all registered
voters, regardless of party affiliation, can vote on any issue, nonpartisan race, and race where a candidate faces no
opposition in the General Election. If you do not indicate your party affiliation, you will be registered with no party
affiliation. For a list of political parties, visit the Division of Elections’ website at: dos.myflorida.com/elections/

phone number and email address as provided become public
record except for the following which can only be used for voter
registration purposes: your FL DL#, FL ID#, SSN, where you
registered to vote, and whether you declined to register or to
