Municipal Elections happen every year and we have the power to decide who represents us at a local level. Check to see 2023 upcoming elections here.
If you’re not eligible to vote due to age, not having voting rights restored, or citizenship status, use this information to help your friends and family who are eligible get ready to hit the ballot box in August and November! Want to get more involved? Volunteer with us and we’ll contact you to share all the details.
What’s Your Plan To Vote?
Vote By Mail
- Voting by mail is an easy & reliable way to vote for young people, senior citizens, voters with disabilities, and those without access to reliable transportation — it’s also a convenient option for those not wanting to stand in line to cast ballots or those preferring to vote at their convenience in the weeks leading up to Election Day.
- To vote by mail in this year’s municipal elections or in the 2024 general election, you must submit a new vote-by-mail request.
- You can request a vote-by-mail ballot be sent to you up until 5 p.m. on the 10th day before any election here. 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.

Restoration of Voting Rights for Returning Citizens
If you are a returning citizen who had their right to vote revoked due to prior felony status, your voting rights may have been restored. Contact the Office of Executive Clemency at 850-488-2952 to begin the process of voter rights restoration; check with the County Clerk about your charges and fees owed. If you need help paying fees, reach out to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition.
