Election Day, August 18th
Vote in the Local Election:
In the local election you will vote for Miami-Dade County Mayor, County Commissioners, and other positions. These are non-partisan local races, which means anyone registered to vote can vote regardless of party affiliation.
Vote in the Primary Election:
In the primary election you will vote for the Florida State Senate, Florida State House of Representatives, and the U.S. House of Representatives. Florida is a closed primary state, which means you must be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in the primary. The chosen candidates will then be on the ballot for the November 3rd General Election.
Three Ways to Vote
Vote By Mail
