Early voting gives you the flexibility to vote when and where it's most convenient for you.
The State of Florida requires counties to offer early voting from March 7 to 14. Supervisors of Elections have the option to offer six more early voting days from March 2 to 6 and March 15.
You can vote at any Early Voting site in the county in which you reside in. This is different than voting on Election Day when you can only vote in the polling place assigned to your precinct.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE VOTING SITE
To avoid delays, elections officials ask you bring one or two forms of identification that include your signature and photo. Without proper identification, you may still vote a provisional ballot, which will later be evaluated by a canvassing board for eligibility.
Any of the following forms of photo identification are acceptable:
- Florida Driver License
- Florida ID Card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
- U.S. Passport
- Debit or Credit Card
- Military ID
- Student ID
- Retirement Center ID
- Neighborhood Association ID
- Public Assistance ID
- Veteran Health ID (issued by VA)
- Concealed Weapon License (issued pursuant to s. 790.06)
- Government Employee ID
If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature.
To make the voting process go faster, officials suggest you bring your sample ballot to the polling place with notes on how you plan to vote. By making your voting decisions before going to the polling place, you help keep the lines down.
