How To Mark Your Ballot
Completely fill in the oval to the left of your choice with the black pen provided. When voting for write-in candidates, fill in the oval next to the words “Write-In” and print the candidate’s name on the line.
Always review your ballot before placing it in the ballot box. Once your ballot is accepted into the ballot box, the law says you have voted and cannot be issued another ballot in that election.
Florida law allows you up to three attempts to mark your ballot correctly. If you make a mistake when marking your ballot, ask for a replacement ballot.
If you vote for more candidates in a race than what is indicated in the title of the race, your vote in that race will not count.
You may choose not to vote on a “Vote for One” race, or not to make multiple choices on a “Vote for Two” (or more) race.
Protecting Your Vote
The Florida Democratic Party is working every day to ensure every eligible Floridian has the opportunity to cast a ballot and have that ballot counted. Because all politics is local, our county voter protection teams work to protect the vote in their respective communities. Through the Voter Protection Assistance Hotline, we answer questions from voters and prospective electors from all 67 counties in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
