VOTER GUIDE: What you need to know ahead of Florida's 2018 Primary Election Day

Jacksonville, FL — With Florida's Primary Election Day quickly approaching, WOKV is breaking down everything you need to know ahead of August 28th.


In order to vote in the primaries, the Florida Division of Election says you needed to register to vote ahead of the July 30, 2018, deadline. If you missed that, you can register to vote between now and October 9, 2018, in order to vote in the General Election on November 6th.


Florida is a closed primary election state-- meaning only voters who are registered members of a political party can vote for that party's candidates or nominees. That means your sample ballot will vary, depending on which political party you're registered in. Ballots will also vary by county.

You can access sample ballots, by visiting the Supervisor of Elections website for your specific county. Links are posted below:

Sample ballots have also been mailed out.


In order to cast your ballot, you'll need to bring a photo and signature ID. This can include a Florida Driver's License, Florida ID, a US passport, a military ID, a student ID, among other options. You can read more about ID requirements HERE. If you fail to bring proper identification, you will be issued a provisional ballot.
