Request a vote by mail ballot (or renew your request) by clicking the red button below. A request is only good for 2 years, so remember to renew after every election for President or Governor. You can decide later whether you prefer to vote in person or to use your vote by mail ballot, but you can’t make a last-minute decision to vote by mail if you haven’t already requested one in time. It’s always better to have options.
You can also request a vote by mail ballot online by clicking here, or by calling the Elections Department at (954) 357-7055 during business hours. We also recommend that you update your signature on file ever 5 years. If you haven’t done that recently, do it now. Call the Elections Department at (954) 357-7055 to get an application, complete it in full, sign it, and mail it to the Miami-Dade Elections Department. We also recommend also that you take a photo of your signed form to remind yourself of the way you signed this form, so you can sign your mail ballot the same way.
Please vote during the early voting period. if you have one available. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL ELECTION DAY! Remember to take valid photo ID. If possible, also take your vote by mail ballot so elections officials can exchange it for a regular ballot. Even if you forget to bring it, you will be permitted to vote on a provisional ballot (to ensure no one votes twice in the same election). If you requested a vote by mail ballot but did not receive it, let the elections officials know.
IF YOU ARE PREVENTED FROM VOTING FOR ANY REASON OR YOUR VOTING STATUS IS CHALLENGED, IMMEDIATELY CALL THE ELECTION PROTECTION HOTLINE AT 1-866-OUR-VOTE or the SOUTH DADE NAACP at the phone number on the website’s home page.
