Updating voter information
If the voter elects to wait to the day of the election to update this information and the voter’s permanent voter registration record differs from the voter’s current address, the voter must complete an affidavit before being allowed to vote.
The voter will be required to vote either at their new polling location or at a central location designated by the county election commission office.
Failure to respond means a transfer to inactive status.
Inactive status cancels all future mailings of election notices, sample ballots, and Vote-by-Mail ballots which were requested previously.
The request must be signed and received no later than five (5) days before the election in order to process the change.
If the voter has not updated their address and the voting period has begun, we encourage the voter to vote during the early voting period.
The following data provided by electors is exempt from Florida's public records law and may be used only by the Supervisor of Elections office unless otherwise ordered by a court: the application's point of origin (by mail, driver license, etc.); social security number; Florida Driver License number; Florida Identification number; and applicant's signature. A voter's political party preference - or lack of a political party preference - must be provided at the time of registration.
There are different legal definitions for residency in different parts of the law.
Remember registrations do not transfer from county to county and if the above requirements are not met the voter will not be allowed to vote in that election.
To receive a duplicate voter registration card, you must make a request, in writing, to your or Go Vote TN app.
Reporting address changes will help avoid problems at the polls and enable the Supervisor of Elections office to issue an updated voter information card that reflects the changes.
Voters who do not notify the Supervisor of Elections office of an address change may find their polling location and election districts have changed and may be directed to a different precinct on Election Day before being permitted to vote.
