Frequently Asked Questions (Español)

When is the 2022 General Election?

  • Florida’s General Election is on Tuesday, November 8, 2022. Registered voters can vote-by-mail (absentee), vote during early voting, or vote at the polls on Election Day.

Who can vote in the General Election?

  • All eligible registered voters, regardless of party affiliation or no party affiliation, may exercise their right to vote for federal, state and local races, judicial retentions, statewide proposed constitutional amendments and local referendums that appear on their General Election ballot.

What happens if a party candidate officially withdraws, passes away, or is ordered removed from the ballot?

  • If a candidate withdraws, passes away, or is ordered removed from the ballot after the ballots have already been printed, the name remains on the ballot. In that instance, the Supervisor of Elections will post withdrawal notices in the voters' booths at the polling location and include a notice with all vote-by-mail ballots subsequently prepared after the notice of withdrawal, death, or court order.

Is a photo ID required at the polls?

  • A current and valid photo ID with signature is required to vote during early voting or on Election Day. Any one of the following 12 IDs will be accepted:
    • Florida driver’s license
    • Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
    • United States passport
    • Debit or credit card
    • Military identification
    • Student identification
    • Retirement center identification
    • Neighborhood association identification
    • Public assistance identification
    • Veteran health identification card issued by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs
    • License to carry a concealed weapon or firearm issued pursuant to s. 790.06
    • Employee identification card issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the Federal Government, the state, a county, or a municipality.
  • If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature. If you do not bring proper ID, you can still vote a provisional ballot. As long as you are eligible, have not already voted and are voting in the proper precinct, your provisional ballot will count provided the signature on your provisional ballot matches the signature in your registration record.

What is the deadline to provide cure omitted or mismatched signature on provisional ballot certificate or vote-by-mail certificate or to provide evidence of eligibility if eligibility was challenged?

  • The deadline is 5 PM local time on the 2nd day after Election Day. Contact your Supervisor of Elections immediately for more information.

What is the number of active registered voters for this election?

  • The Department of State prepares statistical reports (bookclosing reports) that show the total number of active registered voters statewide as of the registration deadline for the General Election. The total number of active registered voters in Florida as of October 11, 2022 was 14,503,978. For other voter registration data, please visit the Division of Elections website.
