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.
