  9. I have just moved to Florida from another state. Is there anything I need to do about my prior voter registration?
    • If you intend to vote in Florida, you must first register to vote here. Please visit our Voter Registration page for more information. Then contact the election office in your former state to cancel your prior voter registration.
  10. I have just moved away from Florida to another state. Is there anything I need to do about my voter registration?
    • If you would like to vote in your new state, please contact the election office for your new state for information on how to register to vote there.
    • If you are no longer a resident of Florida, send written notice to the Supervisor of Elections of the county of your former residence to cancel your Florida registration.
    • If the offices of President and Vice-President are on the ballot and you moved to your new state after the state’s registration deadline, you may, unless already removed from the rolls, vote that race only.
  11. I did not vote in the last election. Do I need to re-register to vote?
    • Failure to vote in an election does not automatically result in removal from the rolls. A registered voter may be removed for reasons of ineligibility or after 2 general election cycles because of undeliverable mail and failure to respond to an address final confirmation notice.  To check your current registration status, visit the Voter Information Lookup on the Division's website or contact your county Supervisor of Elections to verify that you are still registered to vote.

    • If convicted of murder or felony sexual offense, voting rights in Florida can only be restored through clemency pursuant to section 8, Art. V of the Florida Constitution. To apply for clemency, search for grant of clemency and certificates, and/or find out more information about clemency, visit the website for the Florida Commission on Offender Review.
    • If convicted of any other felony offense, voting rights are restored upon completion of all terms of a sentence including parole or probation pursuant to section 4., Art. VI of the Florida Constitution. Such convicted felon may alternatively apply for clemency to restore voting rights.
