Florida's Primary

Florida's 2020 Primary Election will be held on August 18, 2020

(Q) Can all voters vote in the Primary?

  • (A) Florida is a closed primary state. This means that in order to be eligible to vote, voters must be registered with one of Florida's major political parties. However, all registered voters (with or without party affiliation) may vote in a primary election in local nonpartisan races
    • Nonpartisan means that a candidate is prohibited from qualifying or campaigning based upon party affiliation (i.e.- judicial and school board offices, nonpartisan special districts, or local referendum questions).
  • Unfortunately, the deadline to register or switch your party affiliation has already passed, so if you are already registered, you must vote using the information on record.

Florida's General Election

  • General Election Date- November 3, 2020. 
  • Registration Deadline- October 5, 2020.
