Monday is Voter Registration and Party Change Deadline Extended Hours Offered

The Escambia County Supervisor of Elections office will hold extended hours on Monday, July 30, to allow voters to register or change their party affiliation before the book closing deadline for the August 28 Primary Election.

Extended Office Hours: Monday, July 30 – 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Florida law mandates that registration books close 29 days before an election. New registrations and party changes must be completed and received or postmarked no later than July 30 for them to be effective for the August 28 election. Address changes can be made after the books close. If you are unsure of your registration status, visit EscambiaVotes.com and click Am I Registered? to check.

Florida holds closed primary elections. In partisan primary elections, you are only eligible to vote in primary contests for the party in which you are registered, unless it is a universal primary or nonpartisan contest.
