Florida is a closed primary state. This means for the Presidential Preference Primary, only voters registered as Democratic or Republican will be able to vote. The deadline to update your party affiliation, if you chose to, is February 18th. However, if you live in one of the below cities or towns with an election on March 17th, 2020, you can vote in that election no matter what your party affiliation. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Presidential Preference Primary Ballot

Some candidates for president have reportedly suspended or ended their presidential campaigns.

If a candidate does not submit a formal withdrawal by December 9, 2019 in accordance with section 103.101(3), Fla. Stat., the candidate's name must remain on the Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) ballot for his or her respective party. A vote cast for any candidate appearing on the ballot will count as a vote for that candidate.
