Per Florida law (101.62, Fla. Stat.), vote-by-mail ballot requests are valid for all elections through the end of the calendar year of the next regularly scheduled general election. Vote-by-mail requests made prior to November 8, 2022 have expired. Select one of the options below to submit a new vote-by-mail request.

Requesting Your Ballot

There are several ways to request a vote-by-mail ballot:

The supervisor of elections will accept a written, in-person, or telephone request for a vote-by-mail ballot to be mailed to a voter’s address on file in the Florida Voter Registration System from the elector, or if directly designated by the elector, a member of the elector’s immediate family or legal guardian. Immediate family includes spouse, parent, child, grandparent or sibling of elector or elector’s spouse.

If requesting a ballot be mailed to an address other than the voter’s address on file, the request must be made in writing. A written request must be signed by the voter and include the voter’s Florida driver license number or Florida ID card number or the last four digits of the voter’s Social Security number.

If requesting a vote-by-mail ballot in writing for someone other than yourself, you must also provide your name, address, your relationship to the voter, your driver license or ID card number, the last four digits of your social security number, if available, and your signature, as well as the voter’s name, address, date of birth, Florida driver license number or ID card number or the last four digits of the voter’s social security number, and the address to which the ballot is to be mailed.

A designee also may pick up a vote-by-mail ballot for a voter from the supervisor of elections office beginning nine days before election day but may pick up only two ballots per election, other than his or her own ballot or ballots for members of his or her immediate family. Designees must have written authorization from the voter, present a photo ID and sign an affidavit (English/Spanish).

All requests for a vote-by-mail ballot to be mailed to a voter must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on the 10th day before the election to allow ample time for mailing and return of ballot. 

Important: Vote-by-mail ballots cannot be forwarded so be sure we have your correct mailing address on file. Even if the post office forwards your mail to your summer address, they will not forward vote-by-mail ballots.
