2024 Primary Elections Web Image

2024 Primary Elections:

As summer continues, all eyes are on the 2024 election season, which kicks-off this month with the primaries on Tuesday, August 20. For the primary election, Florida has closed elections, meaning that, in most cases, only registered voters with a political party affiliation may vote for candidates from that party. Democrats vote in the Democratic primary; Republicans vote in Republican primary. That applies to all races for Congress, the Florida state legislature, county sheriff and other partisan offices. Registered independents can only vote in non-partisan races. All registered voters can also vote in non-partisan races in Miami-Dade County for county judges, school board members, county mayor, county commissioners, community council members, and community development district seats. For the first time in decades, residents of Miami-Dade County will elect a sheriff and supervisor of elections.


Must renew their vote-by-mail ballots in 2024. Even if you have in the past voted by mail, that registration has expired, and you must apply again for all 2024 elections. We urge all voters to order a vote-by-mail ballot even if you plan to vote in person early or on election day. You never know what may happen and it is good to have the mail ballot, even if you ultimately do not use it.

The deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the August 20 primary is Thursday, August 8. Apply at miamidade.electionsfl.org/vrservices/mbrs#. All vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Supervisor of Election no later than 7 pm on election night.

Traveling in August? Receive your Vote-by-Mail Ballot at a different location. Many people will be away during the election and wish their vote-by-mail ballot to be sent to an address other than their home residence in Miami-Dade. As of April 17, 2024, per Florida Statute, requests for a vote-by-mail ballot to be mailed to an address not on file, must be in writing and signed by the voter using the DS-DE 160 Statewide Vote-by-Mail Request form. To complete your request, please fill out, print, and sign the form, which you can print from here bit.ly/3zhwgZX. You must return the form to the Miami-Dade Elections Department by mail, fax, or email as an attachment. Mail: P.O. BOX 521250, Miami FL 33152, Fax: 305-499-8401, Email: [email protected]

Early Voting:

In Miami-Dade County, early voting begins on Monday, August 5, and closes on Sunday, August 18. The hours for voting change depending on the day, so check the full calendar before heading out to the polls.

Election day:

On election day, August 20, you may only vote at your assigned precinct as shown on your voter’s registration card. Please check carefully as many precincts have changed.

You can learn about early voting locations and times, check your voter status, read a sample ballot based on your location, find your local polling place, and learn more at www.miamidade.gov/global/elections/home.page
