What to Expect at the Polls

Polls will be open on election day from seven (7) AM until seven (7) PM local time. To determine your polling place, check your voter information card, contact our office or lookup your polling location.

You will be asked to show a photo and signature identification when you go to the polls to vote. Acceptable forms of photo identification include a valid and current:

  • Florida driver's license
  • Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
  • United States passport
  • Debit or credit card
  • Military identification
  • Student identification
  • Retirement center identification
  • Neighborhood association identification
  • Public assistance identification
  • Veteran health identification card issued by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs
  • License to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to s. 790.06
  • Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality.

If your photo identification does not contain your signature, you will be required to show an additional identification that provides your signature, and vice versa.

If you do not have the proper identification, you will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot.

You will be asked to sign the pad on the electronic device (EViD) for comparison with the signature on the I.D. that you presented. 

If you need assistance in marking your ballot, please inform the poll worker.

If you make a mistake when voting on a paper ballot, ask for a replacement. You may receive up to two replacements, or a total of three ballots.

If your eligibility to vote cannot be determined, you will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot. A person casting a provisional ballot may present written evidence supporting his or her eligibility to vote to the supervisor of elections by no later than five (5) PM on the second day following the election.

Regardless of the reason why you vote a provisional ballot, you must be given a written notice of rights that includes:

  • A statement that you have until 5 p.m. of the second day after the election to bring evidence of your eligibility to the Supervisor of Elections.
  • A statement that if you voted a provisional ballot solely because you did not bring in identification, you do not have to bring in further evidence of eligibility. The local canvassing board will count your ballot if you voted in the right precinct and the signature on the provisional ballot certificate matches the signature on your voter registration record.
  • A statement that if you voted a provisional ballot because your personal identifying number could not be verified, you can provide the card with the identifying number or a copy of the card may be provided to the Supervisor of Elections by the deadline. 
  • Instructions on how you can find out if your provisional ballot was counted, and if not, the reason(s) why.
  • A statement that if this is a primary election, you should contact the Supervisor of Elections’ office immediately to confirm that you are registered and can vote in the general election.
