Request your mail ballot today!
Floridians who want to keep voting by mail must submit a new mail ballot request.
New Vote-by-Mail Rules
As a result of a 2021 elections law (SB90), all previous mail ballot requests expired after the November 2022 election. Registered Florida voters who want to continue voting by mail in 2023 and 2024 must submit a NEW mail ballot request. New requests are now required after each federal general election cycle. Voters must also now include either their Florida driver license/ID card number or the last four digits of their Social Security number on their vote-by-mail ballot request.

How does voting by mail work in Florida?
1. Register to vote in Florida.
2. Request a vote-by-mail ballot from your county Supervisor of Elections office:
- Request your mail ballot online, by phone, in person, or in writing by email, fax or letter. Provide your name, permanent home address, date of birth, and Florida driver license/ID card number or the last four digits of your Social Security number.
- Any Florida voter can vote by mail. No excuse is needed. And even if you request a mail ballot, you can still decide to vote in-person instead on Election Day or during Early Voting.
- Voters with disabilities can also request accessible vote by mail to receive a mail ballot that they can fill out with their preferred assistive technology.
- There is no deadline to request a mail ballot, but if you request it within 10 days of Election Day you will have to go pick up the ballot for that election from the county elections office.
3. Vote your mail ballot:
- Read the materials that come with your ballot and follow all instructions.
- Remember to sign the back of the mail ballot return envelope.
- Include your phone number and/or email on the envelope so that the Supervisor of Elections can contact you easily if there is a problem.
4. Return your vote-by-mail ballot by 7:00pm on Election Day:
- If you mail it, do so at least 10 days before Election Day so that it gets there in time. A postmark date is not enough.
- You can choose to drop your ballot off at any Supervisor of Elections office in your county or in an official secure ballot intake station.
- You can also ask someone else to drop your ballot off for you. Voters can drop off ballots for immediate family members and up to 2 additional people per election.
- You cannot drop off your mail ballot at your regular polling location on Election Day, but you can exchange it and vote in person instead.
5. Track your mail ballot online to ensure your vote-by-mail request was processed, to see when your ballot is mailed to you, and to ensure your ballot is received on time by the Supervisor of Elections and counted.
