Let your voice be heard! How to register to vote in Florida

Do you want to exercise your constitutional right to vote in federal, state and local elections? 
Here are a few steps to help you register to vote:
Step 1 – Make sure you are eligible to vote:
  • Be a citizen of the United States of America.
  • Be a legal resident of Florida.
  • Be a legal resident of the county in which you seek to be registered.
  • Be at least 16 years old to preregister or at least 18 years old to register and vote.
  • Not be a person who has been adjudicated mentally incapacitated with respect to voting in Florida or any other state without having the right to vote restored; and,
  • Not be a person who has been convicted of a felony without your civil rights having been restored.
Step 2 – To submit an online application, you will need:
  • Your Florida driver license (Florida DL) or Florida identification card (Florida ID card) issued by the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles.
  • The last four digits of your Social Security Number (SSN4).
The Florida Department of State’s website reads: “If you do not have any one or all of the information above, you may still use the online system to prefill a voter registration application form. However, you will have to print, sign, and then mail or deliver your completed voter registration application to your county Supervisor of Elections’ Office.”
  • The deadline to register for an upcoming election is 29 days before that election.
