How Can I Update my Voter Registration Record?

You can update your registration at RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov, Florida's online voter registration system. You will need your Florida driver’s license or ID card, and the last four digits of your Social Security number to update your registration completely online.

Do I Need to Update my Party Affiliation?
You are not required to register with a political party. However, Florida is a “closed primary” election state. The races and candidates that appear on your primary election ballot depend on your party affiliation. You may only vote in a partisan race in a primary election if you are a registered member of that political party. However, there are non-partisan races on the primary ballot. You can vote in these races regardless of your party affiliation. In addition, if all candidates for an office have the same party affiliation, and the winner of the primary will be elected to office, then you can vote in that race regardless of party affiliation. This is known as an “universal primary.”
In a general election, you can vote for any candidates on your ballot, regardless of party affiliation.
You can view a list of political parties on the Division of Elections Political Party webpage.
What if I Need to Make Other Changes?
If you need to make other changes to your voter registration record, such as a change to your phone number or email address, you can use any of the methods listed above to update your information.
Is There a Deadline to Update my Registration?
You can update your existing Florida voter registration record at any time. However, if you wish to change your party affiliation before a primary election, you must make the change at least 29 days before that election.
