What if I am already registered to vote?

You must update your information if any of the following are true—using a new voter registration form is an easy way to do this.

You can register to vote in several ways before the October 9 deadline, including:

New Address. You have moved to a new address since you registered.

Changed Your Name. You have changed your name since you registered to vote.

Party Affiliation. You want to change your party affiliation.

Step TWO: Bring your photo ID.

If you vote in person, you will need to show an accepted form of photo ID with a signature.

Accepted forms of ID are:

Florida driver’s license

Florida ID card, issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles

U.S. passport

Debit or credit card

Military ID

Student ID

Retirement center ID

Neighborhood association ID

Public assistance ID

Note: If your photo ID does not have a signature on it, you can show a second ID that does.

For example: your student ID + a debit card.

Note: If you mail your voter registration form it must be postmarked by October 9.

Signature. If it’s been a while since you registered, you may want to update your signature to be safe and avoid a headache on Election Day.

Step three: Vote

Vote by Mail. To request a vote by mail ballot, contact your county’s Supervisor of Elections.
