Timeline for Reporting and Certification of Election Results (Español)

Results will be released statewide at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

The timeline for the county canvassing board to report results are as follows:

  • Tuesday, March 19, 2024: Preliminary Election Night Returns (the results of all early voting and all vote-by-mail tabulated by the end of the early voting period) are due no later than 7:30 PM in the respective county’s time zone and in 45-minute increments (precinct election results) thereafter until all results (except for provisional ballots and certain vote-by-mail ballots with cure affidavits) are completely reported. Since Florida has two time zones (Central and Eastern), preliminary election night returns will not be released statewide until 8:00 PM Eastern Time.

  • Saturday, March 23, 2024: Unofficial Returns are due no later than noon on the 4th day after the Election. There are no recounts in a Presidential Preference Primary.

  • Monday, April 1, 2024: Official Returns are due no later than noon on the 13th day after the Election.
The Elections Canvassing Commission meets on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, at 8:00 AM to certify the Official Returns.
