Vote-by-Mail Ballot

Due to recent changes in Florida law, all requests for vote-by-mail ballots expired at the end of 2022. Therefore, any request on file has expired. If you want to continue voting by mail, please submit your request today.

Miami-Dade County voters may choose to receive a vote-by-mail ballot for a specific election, or for all elections in which they are eligible to vote through the next regularly scheduled general election. If you have questions, we hope our vote-by-mail ballot FAQs (Español) (Kreyòl) and the information below help you to answer them.

Remember, the U.S. Post Office will not forward vote-by-mail ballot to a different address. If you want your vote-by-mail ballot sent to an address that's different from the one on file with the Elections Department, you must send a signed written request (Español & Kreyòl).

Vote-by-Mail Ballot Guidelines

If you are presently registered to vote in Miami-Dade County you may request a vote-by-mail ballot online. You may also request a ballot by email, fax, phone or mail. If you would like your vote-by-mail ballot sent to an address other than the one on file in the Florida Voter Registration, you must send a signed written request which contains the following information:

  • Residence address
  • Mailing address (if applicable)
  • Voter registration number (optional)
  • Date of the election or elections for which a vote-by-mail is needed
  • Signature of voter (written requests only)

The deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot is 5 p.m. on the twelfth day before the election. We must receive the vote by mail ballot request by 5 p.m., a postmarked vote-by-mail ballot request is not valid.
