Florida law stipulates that supervisors of elections must conduct a biennial registration list maintenance program. This program helps protect the integrity of the electoral process by ensuring the maintenance of accurate and current voter registration records in the statewide voter registration system.
Our office is utilizing change-of-address information supplied by the United States Postal Service to identify registered voters whose addresses might have changed. The USPS list identified over 1,000 registered voters who submitted a change of address notice to their local post office.
Per Florida Statutes, once the Elections Office receives change-of-address information, staff must change the registration records to reflect the new address and must send the voter an address change notice along with a new voter information card.
It is very important that voters keep the Supervisor of Elections Office apprised of their current address because, by law, voters are only allowed to vote in the precinct in which they are registered. Keeping your address current ensures that you will be able to vote on the candidates you are entitled to vote on. In order to avoid delays at the polling place, you should update your address as soon as possible. You may do so by contacting our office via telephone, by clicking here to complete an electronic change of address, by completing a voter registration application, or by visiting our office at 2851 Jefferson Street, Marianna, FL 32448.
