Federal, State and Local Elections

On election day, the polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Early voting will be available at designated locations in each county prior to Election Day. Voters must present valid identification (photo ID, signature); otherwise, they must vote a Provisional ballot.

To participate in the primary election of a particular party, voters must be registered in that party. However, if all candidates for an office are from the same party and will not face opposition in the general election, then all qualified voters may cast a ballot in the primary, regardless of party affiliation.

In the general election, you may vote for the candidate of your choice without regard to political party.

Primary August 18, 2020 (Books close July 18, 2020)

Why Voter Service? 

Voter Service is an integral part of the League of Women Voters.  It is strictly non-partisan and purely educational.  It includes voter registration, as well as the presentation of educational information to assist voters on non-partisan information on issues.

Voter Service concentrates on educating voters before they go to the polls.  One important aspect of Voter Service is the presentation of pros/cons on proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. This information is available on the League website so that you may become informed.
