Mailing Address vs. Residential Address
A residential address is required as it determines the issues and candidates that you can vote on in any election. However, you can receive your election mail at any valid mailing location you choose: a post office box, personal mailbox, college mailbox, or a military or out of state/country address. All elections-related materials, including your ballot, will be sent to the mailing address you provide.
Moving Out of State/Voter Cancellation Information
You must re-register to vote in your new state. To help keep our voter rolls current, please print, complete and mail a Voter Registration Cancellation form to ensure your Hillsborough County voter registration is cancelled.
Political Party or Name Change
You may submit a signed written notice with your date of birth or Florida Voter Registration Number or complete a Florida Voter Registration Application form.
Closed Primary/Selecting a Political Party
Florida is a "closed primary" state. Which means: If you wish to vote in a partisan primary election, you must be a registered voter in the party for which the primary is being held. (Section 101.021, F.S.) If all candidates in a race have the same party affiliation and the winner of the primary election will have no opposition in the general election, all eligible voters, regardless of party affiliation, may vote in the primary election for that race. This is known as a universal primary.
Persons wishing to register without selecting a political party should check the "NONE" or "No Party Affiliation" box. Those registered with no party affiliation, or in a party with no candidates on the ballot, may vote only for nonpartisan candidates (such as judges or school board members) and on issues and referendum questions. Municipal and judicial races are nonpartisan.
For a listing of Florida's major and minor political parties, visit http://elections.myflorida.com/candididate/parties.shtml.
In a general election, you may vote for any candidate regardless of your party affiliation. Party affiliation may be changed at any time; however, changes made within 29 days of a partisan primary election will not go into effect until after the election. Party changes do not affect general or nonpartisan elections.
It is important to have your updated signature on your voter record. This is the signature on file that must match your signature on a mail ballot certificate envelope in order to count your ballot. This signature on file is also used to verify your signature on a candidate or initiative petition.
If your signature or identifying mark has changed, please update your signature on a Florida Voter Registration Application. In addition to the online form, applications may also be obtained at any public library, driver license office or Supervisor of Elections Office.
Signature updates can be made at any time, but must be received before absentee ballots are canvassed in order to be accepted for an election. (Section 98.077, F.S.)
Replacement Voter Information Card:
For a replacement Voter Information Card, please provide us with a signed Florida Voter Registration Application or a signed written request by mail, fax, email (scanned) or hand delivery.

Written communications to or from the Supervisor of Elections regarding business constitute public records and are available to the public and media upon request unless the information is subject to a specific statutory exemption. Therefore, your e-mail address and message may be subject to public disclosure.
