The Presidential Preference Primary Election is a partisan Republican and Democratic Primary only, therefore only voters who are registered Republican or Democrat will be eligible to vote in the March election.
The voter registration books for the Presidential Preference Primary Election are now closed. Any person that is not currently registered anywhere in the state of Florida and now wishes to register for the first time will not be eligible to vote in the March election. Florida is a Closed Primary State therefore, no party changes are allowed once the books have closed. Voters may still update their name, address and signature.
VOTE BY MAIL BALLOTS
Any registered voter may request a mail ballot. Requests can be accepted only from the voter, a member of the voter’s immediate family or legal guardian. Please call the elections office at 850-838-3515 to make your request. The last day to request a mail ballot to be mailed is Saturday, March 7, 2020 per Florida Statute.
If you have moved and you have not contacted your Supervisor of Elections office to make an address change, it is important that you do so as soon as possible. Florida law states you must vote in the precinct in which you are residing. Sample ballots will be mailed out in the next couple of weeks and your correct residential address as well as a correct mailing address is important to ensure you receive the correct sample ballot.
Early voting will take place in the Supervisor of Elections Office located at 433 U S 19 N, Perry and will begin on Monday, March 2, 2020 and will continue through Sunday, March 15, 2020 for fourteen consecutive days. Any voter in the county may vote early in lieu of going to their precinct on election day.
PHOTO AND SIGNATURE ID REQUIRED
Photo and signature identification is required by Florida Law. If the picture ID does not contain the signature of the voter an additional identification that provides the voter’s signature shall be required. A voter information card is no longer accepted as a form of ID.
