Florida is a Closed Primary state. This means that only voters who are registered members of a political party may vote for their respective party’s candidates in a Primary Election. Voters without party affiliation are not eligible to vote for party candidates and voters who belong to a minor party can only vote for party candidates if those candidates are on the ballot in accordance with Florida Statute 101.021.
To make changes to their party affiliation, voters must notify the Supervisor of Elections office by completing and signing a new voter registration application form or other signed written notice that contains your date of birth or voter registration number. You cannot change your party at the polling place. To be eligible for a Primary Election, a party change must be made at least 29 days before the Primary Election as addressed in Florida Statute 97.1031.
Note: Since the Democratic Party has one candidate, the Republican Party will be the only participating party in the upcoming Presidential Preference Primary on Tuesday, March 19, 2024. Voters who wish to vote for a presidential candidate in the upcoming Presidential Preference Primary must be registered to vote as a Republican by February 20 in order to do so.
