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 not eligible to register.

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.
