Am I eligible to register to vote?

You are eligible to vote in Florida if you:
  • Are a U.S citizen
  • Are a resident of Florida
  • Are at least 18 years old by Election Day
You are NOT eligible to vote in Florida if:
  • You have been legally declared "mentally incompetent" by a court
Restorative Requirements
  • You are a convicted felon involving moral turpitude, unless your voting rights have been restored.
You may preregister to vote in Florida
  • At the age 16
  • At the age of 17
Service members and their dependents may register and request a ballot using the federal voter registration/ballot request form ("FPCA"). You will have the following identification options when completing the form:
  • U.S. State or Territory or District Issued ID
  • Option to Indicate that you do not have the Requested ID
  • Last 4 Digits of your Social Security Number
U.S. citizens living abroad have the right to vote as absentee voters, provided they are eligible to vote in their state. If you are living outside of the U.S. permanently, indefinitely, or temporarily, your voting rights stay with you, even if you never voted when you lived in the U.S. To vote from overseas:
  • Complete and send an overseas voter registration/ballot request form to your election office in the U.S. This is one specific form that will register you as an overseas voter and request your absentee ballot – simultaneously.

Can I vote if I have a record?

Individuals convicted of a felony are ineligible to vote while incarcerated, on parole, or on probation. Voting rights are automatically restored after completion of the entire sentence, unless convicted of a felony relating to murder or sexual abuse (in which case one still has to apply to the governor for a pardon). Ex-offenders who are eligible should re-register to vote.

I am a college student. Where do I register to vote?

Students who lived in Florida prior to moving to another state for school, and who wish to establish or keep their Florida voting residency (i.e., at their parents’ address) should have no problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. If you move to your school address in Florida, with the present intent to make it your principal home and you do not plan to move back to the place you lived before, you should be able to establish residency in Florida. While the Florida Constitution requires that you be “a permanent resident of the state, “no court decision or other law suggests that you need to have anything more than a present intent to stay at your new address.
