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.

Municipal Election Cycle Changes

Cities of Bonita Springs, 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, Fort Myers, and Bonita Springs have decided to move their elections to coincide with federal, state and county in even-numbered years beginning in 2020. The Cities of Cape Coral and Fort Myers will hold their Primary Election on Tuesday, August 18, 2020, and General Election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

The City of Bonita Springs will hold its Regular Election on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
