South Florida residents and seasonal residents remember the general election is Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are daily changes to voting information. Please check  vote.org/covid-19  for the latest updates. Here is what you need to know to cast your ballot and make sure it is counted.  

First and foremost, as in years past, voter identification requirements will be strictly adhered to. If you are voting in person in Florida, you must present one valid form of ID that shows your photo and signature at the time you vote.  If you are not voting for the first time in Florida, you do not need to provide ID to vote by mail. Also, if you are a first-time Florida voter who registered by mail and you didn't provide ID when you registered, you'll need to provide a photocopy of one form of ID along with your mail ballot.

 

Vote in Person:

If you will be voting in person, voters are encouraged to use masks while in the polling location. In jurisdictions where voters’ masks may need to be removed to support identification procedures, alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol should be provided at the station so voters can sanitize their hands after removing their masks. A plastic barrier between the voter and the poll worker can provide additional protection.  

Vote by Mail:

You can return your voted mail-in ballot by mail or via a drop box. It is recommended returning your voted ballot as soon as possible.  Find a drop box near you for Florida's ballot drop box locations here.  If you have already voted by mail, you may check the status of your mail-in ballot here.

Vote Early:

Florida voters have the option to vote early in person. Early in person voting in Florida begins at least 10 days before the election. Varies by county. Voters should contact their county elections office to determine if more early voting dates are available. Early in person voting ends 3 days before the election. Varies by county. Voters should contact their county elections office to determine if more early voting dates are available.
