Unfortunately in light of the ongoing public health crisis, it is not safe to move forward with in-person voting, therefore, in consultation with the DNC, the Florida Democratic Party will provide electronic voting for delegate elections.
Requesting an Electronic Ballot
In order to cast your vote in the delegate elections, you must request an electronic ballot HERE. Electronic ballots can be requested beginning April 20 through May 13. All registered Democrats are eligible to vote in their Congressional District’s delegate elections.
Request Ballot for District-Level Delegate Elections
Once you’ve requested an electronic ballot, you’ll receive an email confirming your request. Party leaders and delegate candidates may share this ballot request link to encourage Democratic participation in the elections. Requesting your electronic ballot before May 13 will enable voters to easily access their online ballot during the voting period.

How Voting Works
Voting will open May 14 at 2pm EDT and close on May 16 at 2pm EDT.
Voters who have requested an electronic ballot by May 13 will receive an email when voting opens, with a link and unique code to access their online ballot. This unique code ensures each person only casts one vote, and that each vote is cast in the proper Congressional district. Each code will expire after use or at 2pm EDT on May 16, with no exceptions.
Voters who do not request their ballot by May 13 will still be able to request a ballot during the voting period May 14-May 16. These ballots will be provisional and will be verified after the election, before ballots are tabulated. Voters requesting provisional ballots will enter their information on the ballot request form and receive a unique code and link to cast their provisional vote.
What to Do Now
Share this ballot request form with Democrats who want to vote in the delegate elections! If you’re a delegate candidate, be sure to share the link with Democrats in your Congressional District, and let them know which Presidential candidate you are running to be a delegate for.
If you do not have access to the internet, a computer or a smartphone to vote online, please call (954) 893-2355 to speak with or leave a message for an FDP team member by May 1.
We are excited to use a new system that will help keep our voters safe during this public health crisis. Please review the information provided at floridadems.org/delegates for more information about voting.
