Voter Registration in Florida
You can also change your address or your party affiliation on the form, which will then be forwarded to your local county Supervisor of Elections. You should receive your voter registration card several weeks later from the county Supervisor of Elections, making you eligible to vote for the next elections.
To be eligible to vote in Florida, you should:
- Be a U.S. citizen and a legal Florida resident
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Not have been legally judged ineligible to vote, for either mental incapacitation or crime
- Not have been convicted of a felony without your civil rights having been restored
- Provide a current and valid Florida driver's license or identification card number (or the last four digits of your Social Security number)
If you're applying for a new registration, you must be registered for at least 29 days before an election to be eligible to vote in that election. If you register at the Driver's License office, the day you hand in your form will be your date of registration.
You can also register to vote online at the Division of Elections, Florida Department of State.
