A voter must have a request on file to receive a vote-by-mail ballot. One request for a vote-by-mail ballot will cover all elections through the end of the calendar year of the next scheduled general election. Existing vote-by-mail requests on file are valid through the end of 2022.
A voter requesting a vote-by-mail ballot for themselves, either in-person, in writing, or by phone, must provide the following information:
- Voter’s name
- Voter’s address
- Voter’s date of birth
- Voter’s Florida driver’s license number or Florida ID card number, or last four digits of social security number
- Voter’s signature (written requests only)
An immediate family member or legal guardian requesting a vote-by-mail ballot on a voter’s behalf, must provide the additional information:
- Requestor’s name
- Requestor’s address
- Requestor’s date of birth
- Requestor’s Florida driver’s license number or Florida ID card number, or last four digits of social security number
