Updating Your Signature
Has your signature changed over the years? Now is the time to update the signature on your voter record with the Lee County Supervisor of Elections. It is very important that your voter record contains your current signature. Having your signature up-to-date may seem like a minor thing, but it can be a determining factor in deciding whether or not your vote will be counted when you choose to vote by mail. Florida law requires that the signature on your Vote-by-Mail ballot envelope be compared to the signature on your voter record before the ballot may be counted.
For more information on updating your signature or voter registration information, visit the Voter Resources section of this site and go to Update my Voter Registration Information.
Florida is a Closed Primary State
When registering to vote or changing your party affiliation, it is important to know that Florida is a closed primary state. This means that, in a Primary Election, voters not registered with a major political party may not have any candidates to vote for, and may only be able to vote on non-partisan candidates or issues that may appear on their ballot.
Voters wishing to register to vote or change their party affiliation for a Primary Election must do so 29 days before that election.
