8 Ways to Prepare For The Primary Election

The 2022 primary elections run from Monday, August 8 (the start of Early Voting) to Tuesday, August 23 (Election Day - the last day to vote). Are you election ready? We've got 8 things you can do to get ready to vote, and to help others do the same!

1. Check your voter registration

Go to www.RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov. You can register to vote, check your registration info or update your registration. Hint: if you've moved recently, this is a really good thing to do!

NOTE: The last day to register to vote in the Primary Election is Monday, July 25.

2. Sign up for Vote-by-Mail or check your Vote-by-Mail status

Get your ballot in the mail to vote early, vote easy and vote safe! Go to our Vote-by-Mail portal www.VoteFromHome.miami, where you can sign up for Vote-by-Mail or simply check your Vote-by-Mail status. It's in English, Spanish and Kreyol.

NOTE: The deadline to request a mail ballot for the Primary Election is August 13 but we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you request your mail ballot well before the election because the ballot must be received by the Supervisor of Elections by 7 PM on Election Day.

3. Make sure 3 people you know are registered to vote

Share the Florida Online Voter Registration System website with friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, and classmates. Remember to follow up with those you share the link with too! The link is www.RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov.

NOTE: The last day to register to vote in the Primary Election is Monday, July 25.

4. Help 3 people you know sign up for Vote-by-Mail

We know that when people get their ballot in the mail they are much more likely to vote - and we need every single one this year! Share this link with them, then follow-up! www.VoteFromHome.miami.

NOTE: The deadline to request a mail ballot for the Primary Election is August 13 but we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you request your mail ballot well before the election because the ballot must be received by the Supervisor of Elections by 7 PM on Election Day.

5. See who is on the ballot running to represent Miami Beach and read about the Miami Beach Referendums

We're talking about the Democrats on the ballot only of course! Go to our blog and see a list of the Dem candidates who have qualified to run for seats that represent all or a part of Miami Beach. Click here miamibeachdems.org/dem_primary_2022.

Read the Referendum questions on the sample ballot here, or learn about them on the 2022 Election Show video.

6. Make a plan to vote

You can vote by mail, you can use a drop box, you can vote in-person at an early voting site, or you can vote the traditional way - in-person at your voting precinct on election day (AKA “the last day to vote”). Vote with friends. Vote in packs. Call your family members and make sure they’ve voted. Make a plan.

Vote-by-Mail. Sign up to get your ballot in the mail. Get more info here. Then when you do vote, fill out your ballot, sign the back of the envelope and return it at least 10 days before the election. Then verify that your ballot was received and counted by checking here: www.CheckMyBallot.miami

Early voting. Early voting runs from Monday, August 8 to Sunday, August 21. See the Early Voting sites and schedule here.

Drop box. You can drop off your Vote-by-Mail ballot in-person at a secure drop box at any Early Voting site during Early Voting hours.
