Vote by Absentee
You must first register to vote before you may apply for an absentee ballot. To receive your absentee ballot, you must apply before 5 pm, ten days before the election. This method of voting is safe, secure, and legitimate. For your vote to count, you must follow all official instructions listed on the ballot, security sleeve, and envelope. You may mail your ballot through the Post Office, drop it off in person at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office at 119 W. Kaley St. Orlando, FL. 32806, or forfeit your absentee ballot at your designated polling location in exchange for an in-person ballot. For your absentee ballot to count, it must be received by the Supervisor of Elections before 7 pm on election night. Because of this, it is best to complete and return your ballot as soon as you receive it. If the election day is less than a week away, it is best to not mail your ballot, rather drop it off in person so it will arrive on time.

Register to Vote
To vote in the election, you must be a registered voter within District 3. To register to vote, or to update your address if you have recently moved to District 3, you may do so on the Orange County Supervisor of Elections website. You must be registered 29 days before the election to be eligible to cast a ballot. If you are not sure if you are eligible to vote, you can check your registration status here.

Felony Voting Rights (Amendment 4)
Amendment 4, as passed by Florida voters in 2018 and added to the Florida Constitution, restored the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions who have completed all terms of their sentence, including parole or probation. Amendment 4 does not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses. You can learn more about Amendment 4 and see if you are eligible to vote here.

Run-Off Election
A run-off election can occur when no candidate receives 50% of all voters in the November election. If a run-off election is called, only the top two vote-getters in the November election enter the race. This time around, whoever receives the most votes wins the election.
If there is a run-off election, it will occur on Tuesday, December 7, 2021. Polling locations open at 7 am and close at 7 pm. On the day of the election, you must vote at your designated polling site. All voters are required to present a form of photo identification to receive a ballot. Remember, if you are in line before 7 pm you are still eligible to cast a ballot!
