Early Voting


Early Voting gives you the flexibility to vote when and where it's most convenient for you. Early Voting dates, times and locations vary by county. As long as you're registered to vote in Hillsborough County, you can vote in any Early Voting site we have open. This is different from Election Day voting, when you must vote in the polling place assigned to your precinct.

Early Voting & Secure Ballot Intake Station Locations


Please bring one or two forms of current identification that include your signature and photo. You must have the cards with you -- pictures of ID cannot be accepted. If you forget your ID, you may vote a provisional ballot, which will later be evaluated by the Canvassing Board for eligibility. 

Acceptable photo ID for voting:

  • Florida Driver License
  • Florida ID Card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
  • U.S. Passport
  • Debit or Credit Card
  • Military ID
  • Student ID
  • Retirement Center ID 
  • Neighborhood Association ID 
  • Public Assistance ID
  • Veteran Health ID (issued by VA)
  • Concealed Weapon License (issued pursuant to s. 790.06)
  • Government Employee ID

If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature. We suggest that you bring your sample ballot with you to the polling place, marked with notes on how you plan to vote. That way, you can take time to consider your voting decisions before you get to the polling place and we can keep the lines down for voters.

If you received a Vote By Mail ballot and want to cast that ballot, you do not have to stand in line or go through the check-in process. Just look for the Secure Ballot Intake Station and drop your ballot off. If you requested a Vote By Mail ballot but have decided to vote in person instead, your Vote By Mail ballot will be canceled and we'll print a new ballot for you at the Early Voting site.

Please note: Florida has a very broad public records law. Voter registration applications and other written communications to or from the Supervisor of Elections are public records and are available to the public and media upon request unless the information is subject to a specific statutory exemption. Email addresses are also public records. If you do not want your email address released in response to a public records request, please do not email us. Instead, contact us by mail or phone, or visit us in person. To request public records, visit this page..
