WHO THIS APPLIES TO:   People who voted by provisional ballot and their eligibility to vote has not been verified by the supervisor of elections office



  • If you were issued a provisional ballot for an election administered by your county supervisor of elections, you can go to the Florida Division of Elections website, find and review the current status of your ballot. You must have the provisional ballot ID that was given to you at the time you received the provisional ballot. If you do not have that information, please contact the Florida Supervisor of Elections office in the county of your residence for assistance.

  • If you vote a provisional ballot for other reasons you have the opportunity to bring in evidence to your respective supervisor of elections no later than 5 p.m., of the second day following the election according to this Florida Statue
