Florida's Closed Primary Elections

Florida is a closed primary election state. That means that only voters who are registered members of a political party which has candidates on the primary ballot may vote for that party’s candidates at the primary election. The deadline for a voter to make a party affiliation change is no later than 29 days before a primary election.

This means that August 1, 2016 is the deadline to change your party or register to vote for the August 30, 2016 Primary Election.

If you are voting by mail or plan to vote by mail and wish to change your party affiliation, it is important to do so by July 12, 2016 to ensure you receive the correct ballot style - otherwise please contact our office for a replacement ballot if you were mailed a ballot with your former party affiliation.

Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
