2019 Election Cycle Changes
Cities of Cape Coral and Fort Myers
After careful consideration, the Lee County Supervisor of Elections made the decision to offer all municipalities in the county, the option to move their regular elections to occur in conjunction with federal, state and county elections in the even-numbered years. We believe this change will be effective in increasing voter participation during municipal elections and will provide significant cost savings to the cities in Lee County.
At this time, the Cities of Cape Coral and Fort Myers have decided to move their Primary and General Elections to coincide with federal, state and county elections in even-numbered years beginning in 2020, and will not hold their regular elections this fall.
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 prior to that election.
The book closing date for the March 17, 2020 Presidential Preference Primary is February 18, 2020.
