The Voting 101 guide written by the Supervisor of Elections (SOE) has details regarding different aspects of voting. See that and other parts of the SOE website for complete information. Listed below are the main points to consider:
To check voter registration status:
Previous voters should check their voter registration status prior to elections, just to make sure everything is good. Go here: https://registration.elections.myflorida.com/CheckVoterStatus
It is good practice to do this several weeks prior to an election so you have time to make corrections.
To update voter registration information:
If you need to update your voter registration information (change of name, or address, signature change, etc.), go here to do it online: https://registertovoteflorida.gov/home
To register to vote:
Go online here to register: https://registertovoteflorida.gov/home
You can also go to Elections Center, Dept of Motor Vehicles, or Tax Collector offices to register in person.
To register, you must be US citizen, Florida resident, 18 or older (can pre-register at 16), not a convicted felon or your civil rights have been restored, not adjudicated mentally incompetent
You can apply to register to vote any time, but you need to do so at least 29 days prior to an election in order to vote in that election.
To request mail-in ballot:
Go online here to request vote by mail ballot: https://www.martinvotes.com/ballot-by-mail-request/
Vote by Mail ballots are mailed approximately 30 days prior to each election. They cannot be forwarded.
To verify your place of voting (precinct):
Go online here to verify your precinct location: https://www.martinvotes.com/election-information/precinct-locations/#Search
Check with the DEC to find out if there is a precinct captain for your precinct.
To become an Election Worker (Poll Worker) for the Supervisor of Elections Office:
Go online here to volunteer as an Election Worker (clerk, assistant clerk, inspector, tech, and poll deputy): https://www.martinvotes.com/election-information/become-an-election-worker/ It's always prudent to have Democrats participating as poll workers!
