August Voting Day (Florida Primary) August 20, 2024

August 20 @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

The August Voting Day in Florida is NOT just a Primary.

It is actual election day for all non-partisan seats up for election (Think School Board, for Example).

NPA Voters WILL have a ballot, but it will not include the partisan primaries. 

They need to be encouraged to vote (again, think School Board)!!!!

Or drop the form off at one of our two election offices. Click here for address information.
Florida is a Closed Primary State
According to Florida law, Florida is a Closed Primary State, meaning only voters registered with a political party can vote in that party’s primary elections. However, all registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, may vote on issues and nonpartisan contests.                                                                                                                       
Universal Primary
If all candidates in a primary race have the same party affiliation and the winner will have no opposition in the General Election, all qualified electors, regardless of party affiliation, may vote in the Primary Election for that contest.  (FYI, Not applicable in this primary.)                                    

 

Early Voting and Vote by Mail will be available.  Ways to vote and locations: VOTING
