The Book Closing Date is the statewide deadline to register to vote, or change your political party for any election if you are already registered. For first time voters in Florida, a completed voter registration form must be in the Supervisor of Elections' office, or postmarked, by the book closing date. If you have relocated to a new address within Florida, register that address with the Supervisor of Elections' office as soon as possible.

An online sample ballot will usually be available 30-35 days prior to an election. Immediately following the election, the sample ballot will be replaced by the election results.
