Update Voter Information

To check your registration status, please visit the Division of Elections website. You will need to provide your first and last name, along with your date of birth. Here, you can see your voter status, precinct information, and more.

How to update my voting registration

If you need to update your voting card or need to apply for a replacement card, you must fill out the Voter Registration Application. Provide the information you wish to change or update. Print and sign the application and mail or hand deliver it to your county Supervisor of Elections.

If the updates or changes are made, the Supervisor of Elections will mail you a new card. Once you receive the voter registration card, please make sure all of the information is correct. If not, contact your county Supervisor of Elections.

What sorts of information should be updated on your card

The following information can be updated or changed:

      • Name
      • Party Affiliation (If you wish to update your party affiliation, the party change deadline for the primary election is August 1.)
      • Address
      • Signature (You may want to consider updating your signature once a decade as signatures change over time. Signatures may also change because of injury, disability, or age.)

Signature Updates

If you are a registered voter and need to update your current signature, you must fill out the Voter Registration Application. Mail or hand deliver the updated application to your county Supervisor of Elections. If the signature change is made, the Supervisor of Elections will mail you a new card.

In order for the signature updates to be used for signature comparisons in absentee and provisional ballots, the update must be received before the canvassing of absentee ballots begins. Canvassing may begin as early as 15 days before an election.

Signature “Cure” Process

A recent court ruling states that local election officials must give voters who voted by mail another chance to submit a signature if their signatures on the ballot certificate and on file did not match.

If you have not already been contacted by your supervisor of elections and you are concerned that your signature on your returned ballot did not match the one on file, please contact your local supervisors of election office immediately. If you are told that your signature did not match, complete the Signature Cure Affidavit form and include a copy of your identification. The affidavit form will be available on your local supervisors of election website.

You can also track the progress of your vote by mail ballot online. Some county supervisor of elections will flag that online for your ballot if applicable. If you have any questions about the process or need assistance, please contact Disability Rights Florida.
