Voting day spelled out on board
The Presidential Preference Primary Election is on March 17, with a registration closing date of Feb. 18. Now is a good time to register to vote or check your voter information to make sure everything is up to date on the day of the election.
It's also good to remember that Florida is a closed primary election state. That means that only voters who are registered members of a political party can vote during a primary election.
However, there are instances when all registered voters can vote in a primary election, regardless of political party, or even if they are registered nonpartisan (i.e., free from party affiliation):
  1. If the primary election ballot includes races for nonpartisan judicial and school board offices, nonpartisan special districts, or local referendum questions
  2. If all of the candidates in a primary election race are in the same party, and the winner won't face an opponent in the general election (including qualified write-in candidates)
Know your party affiliation before you vote. If you would like to make a party change, submit a request before the Feb. 18 registration closing date.
