Florida is a “Closed Primary State,” which means that a voter may only vote in a primary for the party with which he/she is registered. A voter registered without a party affiliation may only vote in nonpartisan races during a primary election. If all candidates in a race on the primary ballot have the same party affiliation and there is no opposition in the general election, all eligible voters may vote in the race, which is called a “Universal Primary.”
To select a political party or make a party change use a Voter Registration Application. Check the box of the political party with which you wish to register: Florida Democratic Party, Republican Party of Florida, or a minor political party (print the name of the party). Persons wishing to register without selecting a political party should check "No party affiliation." The Division of Elections provides a complete list of registered political parties.
All registered voters may vote in a General Election regardless of political party affiliation.
No party changes allowed after registration books close; 29 days before an Election.
