Since 2020, it’s become harder to cast your ballot in Florida. Here are the changes you need to pay attention to:

When making a plan to vote…

  • If applying to vote by mail, you’ll now need to include a driver’s license or non-driver ID number, or the last four digits of your SSN.

When casting your vote…

  • There are more restrictions on the locations and staffing of ballot drop boxes, which means there will be fewer of them statewide.

Moving forward…

  • Florida has passed a new law banning ranked-choice voting and hurting the ability of third-party organizations (colleges, churches, etc.) to register new voters that will take effect in 2023. Importantly, the law will automatically place voters that do not respond to address confirmation requests on an “inactive list”, so make sure you are paying attention to any official mail from the Florida government and responding in a timely manner.
