Before Going to Vote

REVIEW YOUR VOTER INFORMATION CARD

Your Voter Information Card provides your precinct number and polling place, as well as other information contained in your voter registration record.  If you did not receive your card, contact the Supervisor of Elections Office. Should your precinct or polling place change, or if you update your voter registration record, you will be mailed a new card. To avoid delays and paperwork at the early voting site or polling place, be sure your address is current in your voter registration record. Inform us of any changes to your registration information by visiting our website or contacting our office.


YOUR SAMPLE BALLOT: REVIEW IT, MARK IT, TAKE IT TO THE POLLS


Your sample ballot is based on your legal residence address, and party affiliation (in primary elections) and will be mailed approximately three weeks prior to Election Day.  If you would like your sample ballot e-mailed, please notify the Supervisor of Elections Office.  Your sample ballot will contain your specific ballot style and information regarding voting opportunities in the election.  It may also be used to research candidates and issues.  You may mark your sample ballot and take it to the early voting site or polling place for your reference.


WHEN AND WHERE TO VOTE

 

On Election Day, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You must vote at your assigned polling place. Contact the Supervisor of Elections’ Office or visit our website if you need confirmation on where your polling place is located or have questions.


WHAT TO BRING

If you choose to vote in person during the early voting period or on Election Day, you must present a CURRENT and VALID photo identification (ID) along with a signature ID. A voter may present two separate forms of ID, one with a photo on it from the list below and another with a signature (may or may not be from the list below). Example: Photo on Student ID and signature on credit card; or photo on Military ID and signature on a library card are acceptable. The photo ID must be from the list below:

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.
