Voter Registration and Vote by Mail Status

New election laws were passed by the Republican-controlled Florida legislature in 2021, resulting in the expiration of

 all Vote-by-Mail ballot requests in December 2022.

That means if you had a standing request to receive mail ballots, 

you must put in a new request.

We recommend doing it now, since if you live within the city of Tampa, this will affect your municipal elections in March, 2023.

 Please visit the Supervisor of Election website 

to make sure you continue

 receiving your Vote-by-Mail ballot. 

Are you new to Florida? Have you moved to or from Hillsborough County? Do you just want to verify that your voter registration information is correct?

You can do all of it at RegisterToVoteFlorida.com.
