FLORIDA ABSENTEE BALLOTS AND EARLY VOTING

Who Can Absentee Vote in Florida?
All qualified voters are permitted to participate in early voting or vote absentee under Florida law.

How Can I Acquire an Absentee Ballot?

A registered voter, a member of the voter's immediate family, or the voter's legal guardian - if directly instructed by the voter - may request an absentee ballot from the Supervisor of Elections in the voter's county. The ballot may be requested by phone, in person, or sent in writing. If you would like to have an absentee ballot mailed to you, contact your supervisor of elections by 5 p.m. on the sixth day before an election.  The following information should be provided in the request:

  • voter's name
  • voter's address
  • voter's date of birth
  • requester's name
  • requester's address
  • requester's driver's license number (if available)
  • requester's relationship to the voter, and requester's signature (written request only)
  • written requests should be signed by the voter.
    During the 15 days before the election, early voting will be available for all registered voters in elections offices and specific designated sites. Voting will be conducted for eight hours on each weekday and for eight hours during the weekend.

Military and Overseas Citizens

Military personnel on active duty overseas, along with their spouses and dependents, as well as United States citizens residing outside the country, may apply for voter registration, or request an absentee ballot with a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA). A FPCA can be obtained from a Voting Assistance Officer or from this website. If the FPCA is not available, call or send a written request by mail, email, or fax to the Supervisor of Elections and a voter registration application or absentee ballot will be sent to you.  Once you have completed your absentee ballot, you can either return it by fax or mail, only. Completed ballots returned by e-mail will not be accepted. Make sure the absentee ballot is signed and dated.

Additional Information for Overseas Voters

How do I Return the Absentee Ballot and What is the Deadline?

The voter must mail, deliver, or have delivered the marked ballot so that it reaches the supervisor of elections no later than 7 p.m. on the day of the election. Do not return the marked ballot to a polling place.
