State law requires voters to provide a valid photo and signature ID at the polls. Accepted photo/signature ID must be current (not expired). Accepted forms of ID are: Florida driver license, DHSMV-issue Florida ID, U.S. Passport, debit or credit card, military ID, student ID, retirement center ID, neighborhood association ID or public assistance ID. If the photo ID does not include the voter’s signature, the voter should provide an additional form of accepted ID with their signature. The voter identification cards voters received in the mail from the Elections office are not approved ID and are not necessary at the polls. Voters without the proper ID will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot.

Registered voters planning to vote in person during Early Voting or on Election Day are encouraged to study their sample ballot and bring it along to use as a guide when voting. To verify voter registration status, and to view a sample ballot, registered voters may go online to the “Am I Registered” web page.
