Welcome to the new version of Miami-Dade County's website. We'd love your feedback. While we're at work, you may be directed to miamidade.gov, which is still your primary source for information.

Register to Vote

The right to vote is a crucial part of what makes our country work as a democracy. If you're not registered to vote yet, see if you're eligible, and if you are, you can register today. Read the Voter Information Guide. (Español) (Kreyòl)

You can register to vote any time of the year, but to be able to vote for a specific election, you must register no more than 29 days before that election. 

 

  • Eligibility & Requirements

    Who can register to vote

    • Anyone who is least 18 years old, though you can pre-register at 16.
    • Any citizen of the United States. You can register right after you've become a citizen.
    • You must live in Miami-Dade County to register with us. You can register with us as soon as you move into the County.

    The following people cannot register to vote:

    • Anyone who is not a U.S. citizen.
    • If it has been determined legally that you're mentally unfit for voting, and your right to vote hasn't yet been restored.
    • If you are a convicted felon, and your civil rights haven't been restored yet, you can't vote.
  • Voter Registration Application

    If you're eligible to vote, fill out the Voter Registration Application (Español) (Kreyòl). You can also register to vote online.

    When you register, it's required by law that you include your actual home address. A P.O. Box or business address is only allowed as a mailing address, not as a home address.

    After you have filled out the form, print it, sign it, and mail it to us. You can have a family member drop it off at the Elections Department or at the Elections Branch office downtown, but that family member must also bring a copy of your ID.

  • Voter Information Card

    Once we learn that you're eligible to be a voter in the State of Florida, we'll mail you a Voter Information Card. It has all of your voter information, including precinct number, voting location and voting districts.

    If you lost your card, send us a signed letter with your name and date of birth. You'll get your new card free of charge in about a week.

    If there's been a change to your voting location, we'll send you a new card with the updated information.

  • Voter Registration Changes

    Moving within Miami-Dade County or from another Florida county

    You can change your address through our Voter Information page, or by email, telephone, fax, mail or in person. You will need to provide us with your full name, the new address, and your date of birth.

    If you've moved to Miami-Dade County from another Florida county, you'll need to register with us to vote in Miami-Dade.

    Political party or name changes

    To change your party, send us a signed letter with your date of birth. You must change your party no more than 29 days before a primary election to vote on the ballot of your new party.

    Name changes can be made by sending us a signed letter that has your date of birth or your voter registration number.

    Signature updates

    If you'd like to update your signature, go to our Voter Information page to update it online or fill out a new Voter Registration Application with the updated signature. You should update your signature every now and then as it may change over the years.

    If you can't sign your name due to a disability, a mark may be used, such as an "X." This ensures that any petition or vote-by-mail ballot signed by you will match the signature that we have on file, as long as you continue to use the same mark. In case you decide to vote by mail, be sure to send us your signature update at least 15 days before the election in which you would like to vote.

  • Other Voter Registration Agencies

    There are also other places authorized to accept voter registration applications. When you give them your application, they send it to us.
