If you are not registered to vote in Florida, please visit our Register to Vote page for information on how to register for the first time.
Your address is an important part of your voter registration record. Where you live determines your election day polling place, district assignments and in which races you can vote, and is used to send you election mail. If you have moved, please update your address on file with our office as soon as possible.
If you are a registered voter in Leon County, you can use our online In County Address Change form to easily submit your address change request. You can also use this form to add or update a mailing address to your voter registration record.
If you are a registered voter in another Florida county and are moving to Leon County, you do not need to re-register to vote. However, you will need to update your voter registration record to reflect your new residence. You can use our online Out of County Address Change form to easily submit your address change request.
If you are moving from Leon County to another state, please complete a Cancellation of Registration form so that we can deactivate your Florida voter registration record.
Your signature is an important part of your voter registration record. Your signature is used to verify your identify on petitions, Vote-by-Mail ballot certificates, and other documents. If your signature has changed over time, you can update your signature on file with our office by filing out, signing, and submitting a Florida Voter Registration Application to our office at any point before we receive your Vote-by-Mail ballot. We can accept these signature updates via mail, email, or fax.
If you need to make other changes to your voter registration record, such as a change to your name, party affiliation, or phone number, you can use any of these methods listed below to update your information.
Complete a Florida Voter Registration Application then print, sign your name, and mail the application to our office at P.O. Box 7357 Tallahassee, FL. 32314. If you do not have access to a printer, call us at (850) 606-8683 and we will gladly mail an application to you.

Florida is a closed primary election state. Only voters who are registered with a political party may choose among their party’s candidates in a primary election. However, many local offices are nonpartisan and candidates for those offices often appear on Primary Election ballots too. So even though a primary election is closed, there is usually something for everyone to vote on, such as:
Voters can change their party affiliation at any time, but for the change to be in effect for a primary election, the change must be made by the Book Closing Deadline 29 days before the election.
At a general election, all registered voters may vote for any candidate or question on the ballot, regardless of party affiliation.
You can view a list of political parties on the Division of Elections Political Party webpage.
- When candidates for nonpartisan offices appear on a primary ballot, or if local referendum questions are placed on a primary ballot, then voters from any party, including those without party affiliation, are eligible to vote on them.
- If all candidates for an office have the same party affiliation and the winner of the primary election will be elected to office, then all voters from any party, including those without party affiliation, are eligible to vote on those races in the primary election.
