Registering to Vote in FloridaYou must first meet certain requirements. These can be found on the Florida Division of Elections web site. Basically, you must:
- be a US citizen,
- be a resident of Florida,
- be 18 years old, and
- have the right to vote (not be adjudicated mentally incompetent, not have committed a felony or fall into one of these two categories but have had the right to vote legally restored).
Next, you must fill out the Voter Registration Application. You can do this online and print the result or print the form and fill it in. However, you must sign the document with your legal name. This must be an original signature, not a copy.
Once completed, you may mail the form to the county Supervisor of Elections or mail or hand deliver the application to any Supervisor of Elections’ office in the state, a driver’s license office, a voter registration agency including an armed forces recruitment office, public library, or the Division of Elections.
To vote in an election, you must be registered at least 29 days before the election.
