Everyone that wants to vote by mail needs to re-request their Vote-By-Mail (VBM) ballots for the 2023/2024 General Election cycle. If you have not re-requested already, below are the links to request a vote-by-mail ballot for each of our Palm Beach-Treasure Coast counties, a link to find Supervisors of Elections for all other Florida counties, as well as a link to check the status of your VBM request.
Here’s why we encourage everyone to vote by mail. In the 2022 General Election our members that requested Vote-by-Mail ballots (VBM), voted at a rate 22% HIGHER than our members that did not request a Vote-by-Mail ballot (VBM). Those members with VBM ballots voted at 86% compared to NON-VBM members who voted at only 64%. Every vote counts in every election. Please consider requesting a Vote-by-Mail ballot and do it today. It will be valid through to the 2024 Presidential Election and all elections in between. If you later decide to vote in person, you can still vote in person. If you do decide to vote in person, we suggest that you bring your vote-by-mail ballot with you to have it canceled so you can vote in person. Although it is not necessary to bring your VBM ballot to vote in person, bringing it with you can save time and avoid any problems.
Request a Vote-by-Mail Ballot
Requests for vote-by-mail ballots must be received in your local Supervisor of Elections office no later than 5:00 pm on the 10th day before an election.
Contact your local Supervisor of Elections to request a vote-by-mail ballot. You may request a vote-by-mail ballot in person, by mail, email, fax or by phone. Only the voter or a designated member of his or her immediate family or legal guardian can request a vote-by-mail ballot for the voter. Immediate family means the designee’s spouse, parent, child, grandparent or sibling of the designee or of the designee’s spouse.
As a voter requesting a vote-by-mail ballot, you must provide your:
- date of birth
- signature (written requests only)
If an immediate family member or legal guardian is requesting a vote-by-mail ballot for you, that person must provide the above information about the voter as well as the following:
- Requester's name
- Requester's address
- Requester's driver's license number (if available)
