Vote By Mail Signature Cures

PLEASE NOTE: An Emergency Order was issued by the Secretary of State on 11/9/22 extending the deadline for Vote By Mail signature cures to 5 p.m. Saturday, November 12. 

If you received a message that your Vote By Mail ballot was referred to the Canvassing Board because you did not sign the ballot return envelope or the signature on the envelope did not match your signature on file, please follow these simple instructions.


Florida Statute allows you to "cure" the issue so that your Vote By Mail ballot may be counted. To do so, you must complete, sign and return the Vote By Mail Cure Affidavit with a copy of your identification. The law requires this to be in our office no later than 5 p.m. on the second day after the election for your Vote By Mail ballot to be counted. However, an Emergency Order extended the deadline due to Tropical Storm Nicole. 

Please make sure to read the instructions on the affidavit carefully. For the 2022 General Election, both the signed affidavit and a copy of the approved identification must be received by November 12 at 5 p.m.  

Use one of these options to return the signed affidavit and a copy of your valid ID:

  • Fax: (813) 612-4199
  • Email: (attach affidavit and copy of valid ID)
  • Deliver to 2514 N. Falkenburg Rd. or 601 E. Kennedy Blvd., 16th floor (Branch offices are closed Thursday, 11/10, and will reopen Monday, 11/14.)

You can track the status of your ballot here.

If you have any questions, please call our Voter Services department at (813) 612-4180 or toll free at (888) 297-4362.
