PRESS RELEASE: Secretary Byrd Reminds Voters of Early Voting Options for Presidential Preference Primary Election

Tallahassee, Fla. –

Today, Secretary of State Cord Byrd reminded Florida voters of early voting options available for the upcoming Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) on Tuesday, March 19, 2024.

“As a convenient way to cast their ballot, registered Florida voters can vote early at any of the designated early voting sites in the county in which they are registered,” said Secretary of State Cord Byrd. “All 67 counties will offer early voting from March 9 through March 16, 2024, at designated early voting sites and some counties may offer additional days.”

The PPP is an election held for Florida’s two major political parties. The parties provide the list of presidential nominees to appear on the PPP ballot. Since the Florida Democratic Party provided solely the name of one nominee, the candidate’s name will not appear on the ballot and no PPP is held for the party. (See 103.101(4), Fla. Stat.) Therefore, this PPP is solely for voters registered with the Republican Party of Florida.  However, there may be local nonpartisan elections held at the same time as the PPP Election. In those elections, all eligible voters, regardless of party affiliation, can vote for those local races. 

You can find additional information regarding Florida’s Presidential Preference Primary on our Quick Facts webpage.

The Division of Elections posts early voting dates, times and locations for all counties on its website. Voters can also contact their local Supervisor of Elections office for information on early voting in their county.

The Division also posts daily online statistics on early voting and vote-by-mail based on county-specific reports filed by Supervisors of Elections.

Voters in Florida have three options to exercise their right to vote: voting-by-mail, early voting and voting at the polls on Election Day. Voters are encouraged to contact their local Supervisor of Elections office for additional information about these options.
