Supervisor of Elections Robert D. Bender reminds voters who wish to be mailed a vote-by-mail ballot for the March 19 Presidential Preference Primary Election to request their ballot no later than tomorrow, Thursday, March 7 at 5:00 p.m. Voters can make their request by using the online form at or by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850) 595-3900, e-mail ([email protected]), or fax (850) 595-3914. Requests must include the voter’s date of birth, address, and their Florida Driver’s License or Florida ID Card number or the last 4 digits of their social security number.

The U.S. Postal Service recommends voters mail ballots at least one week before the due date. Return postage has been paid for the 2024 elections. Completed vote-by-mail ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, March 19. Voters may also drop-off their vote-by-mail ballot at the Elections Office or at any of the ten area early voting locations during early voting hours. Visit for a listing of early voting hours and locations. Voters are still prohibited from returning their completed vote-by-mail ballot at an Election Day polling place.

After Thursday’s deadline, a voter may still pick up a vote-by-mail ballot in person from the Elections Office through Monday, March 18.

The March 19 election is a Republican Party Primary. In Florida’s closed partisan primary elections, you are only eligible to vote in primary contests for the party in which you are registered. Democratic, non-partisan and minor party voters will have contests on the August 20 election ballot.
