Your vote matters! As young people in South Florida, we understand the issues affecting our city, and we have the solutions our communities need to thrive. With local elections right around the corner, it’s up to us, the voters, to decide who will represent us at the local-level. Engage Miami is here to send you reminders for election deadlines, information on your voting rights and how to vote, and voter guides that break down where candidates stand on the issues that matter most. Don’t miss an election ever again! Pledge to be a voter with us today to receive texts and emails about this year’s municipal elections.
Let’s make sure you’re vote ready in three simple steps:
Register to vote or update your voter registration to change address or party affiliation.
Did you know? Florida has closed primaries, so only registered party voters can participate in primary elections for important races like Governor and State Legislature. Be sure to choose a political party to participate in primary elections.
Request your vote by mail ballot.
Request your vote by mail ballot:
- A new state law requires all Florida voters to re-submit their vote-by-mail request after every General Election (every two years). If you registered for vote-by-mail before December 2022, that means your request expired.
- You can request a vote-by-mail ballot be sent to you up until 5 p.m. on the 12th day before any election. It’s important to request and mail your vote-by-mail ballot as soon as possible.
- The ballot must be returned and arrive at the elections department by 7 p.m. on Election Day (it can also be dropped off at a drop box, or returned by designee – see your options here).
- Make sure to sign your ballot with the same signature as you have on your Voter Registration card.
- USPS recommends vote by mail be mailed at least a week in advance to ensure it will arrive by Election Day. If it is a week before the election and you still have your vote by mail ballot, we recommend dropping it off or voting in person.
