You are not required to declare a party preference. Applicants who fail to designate a political party affiliation will be registered without party affiliation; however, Florida is a closed primary state. In a primary election voters may only vote for candidates in their party. By not selecting a party, you limit your vote in the primaries to only non-partisan candidates and issues.
There is an exception to this rule. At the November 1998 general election, voters approved Constitutional Revision No. 11.
Part of Constitutional Revision No. 11 states: If all Candidates for an office have the same party affiliation
and the winner will have no opposition in the general election, all qualified voters, regardless of party affiliation,
may vote in the primary election for that office. This race will then be called a Universal Primary Contest.
In the general election, party affiliation is not an issue. You may vote for any candidate,
regardless of party preference.
Party affiliation may be changed at any time; however, changes made within 29 days of an election
will not go into effect until after the election. You may change your party by completing a voter registration application, or by mailing a signed, written request which includes either your date of birth or your voter identification number to PO Box 300, Dade City FL 33526.
