Ways to Register
There are many ways to register to vote. Find what works best for you! Once registered, you will receive a voter information card with your voting information.
Online Voter Registration
Florida’s Online Voter Registration (OVR) system allows eligible Florida residents to register to vote at RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov. OVR is secure and easy to use, available in both English and Spanish, and accessible for people with disabilities.
Register to Vote by Mail
If you prefer to register by mail, you can download the application or request a copy to be mailed to you. Once it’s complete, simply mail it to your county’s Supervisor of Elections listed on the back of the form.
Register to Vote in Person
You may also complete an application or deliver an application in person to any Supervisor of Elections Office, Division of Elections location, an office that issues driver’s licenses, or any voter registration agency such as a public assistance office, center for independent living, office serving persons with disabilities, public library, or an armed forces recruitment office.
Other Registration Options
If you are a person with a disability who receives state-funded services, you can give your registration form to the agency at which you receive the services (examples include waiver support coordinators, mental health and substance abuse providers, and vocational rehabilitation counselors).
Your Voter Information Card
Whether you register by mail, online, or in person, after you submit a completed application, the Supervisor of Elections in your area will send you a voter information card. The card will say where to go in order to cast your vote (your neighborhood polling place).
If you do not receive your card within 3 weeks of turning in your application, or if you have any questions regarding your registration, please call your county Supervisor of Elections.
Assistance Registering to Vote
People with disabilities can use registration assistance in order to vote.
Staff at your local Supervisor of Elections Office or private provider (contractor with a state agency providing assistance or services to individuals with disabilities) may assist by explaining the requirements for correctly filling out a voter registration application, and can even help you complete the form itself.
You may also choose to receive assistance from your spouse, parent, or child. And, a variety of organizations can also provide assistance including the Florida League of Women Voters and Rock the Vote.
