Florida Absentee Voting

Vote-by-Mail (previously known as Absentee Voting) refers to voting a ballot you receive through the mail or picked up by a voter who is unable or unwilling to go to the polls to vote on ELection Day. You do not have to be absent from the county or have an excuse to vote-by-mail in any election.

To request a vote-by-mail ballot, you can fill out the online application on your county Superviors of Elections' website. You can also request a ballot in writing through the Supervisor of Elections, in person at the Supervisor of Elections or by telephone to the Supervisor of Elections.

All requests for a vote-by-mail ballot must be made no later than 5pm on the 6th day before an election. You can still pick up a vote-by-mail ballot from the Supervisor of Elections up until, or including Election Day.

Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Supervisor of Elections no later than 7pm on Election Day in order to be counted.
