Closed Primary


Florida is a CLOSED Primary State

Florida Law requires Voters to vote in the party with which the Voter is registered when the registration books closed for that Primary election. (§101.021, F.S.)

Voters who are registered as NPA (Non-Party Affiliated) will be ineligible to vote in either the Presidential Preference Primary (March 15, 2016) or the Primary Election (August 30, 2016). In the General Election, all Voters may vote regardless of their party affiliation.

NOTE: This does not include NPA races that may be on the ballot (examples: Referendums, NPA Offices, etc...). Any Voter may vote regardless of their party on any of these races should they be on a Primary ballot. The closed primary only extends to Republican and Democrat races (Party Nominations, etc...).

Any Voter wanting to change their party to be eligible to vote in a Primary election must complete a party change request form:
