Florida: Take This Quiz To See How Prepared You Are To Vote In The Midterms

Voting is a fundamental right, and Floridians have the power to do great things for the midterm elections. Visit the Southern Poverty Law Center\'s Our Future, Our Vote page for more info, and remember to register to vote by Oct. 11 and vote on Nov. 8!

The most important question: Are you registered to vote?


You bet.

Let’s register to vote!
If you want to vote in this upcoming election, [go here to register](https://registertovoteflorida.gov/home) no later than **Oct. 11.** If you _think_ you’re registered to vote but aren’t sure, or you moved, [go here](https://registration.elections.myflorida.com/CheckVoterStatus) to check your status or update your address.

True or false: If you’re voting by mail, you have to request a vote-by-mail ballot.



[Yes, seriously](https://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2021/90/?Tab=BillText). If you’re voting by mail, you have to request an absentee ballot every time. So just because you voted by mail in 2020, you won’t automatically be sent a ballot in 2022. To request a ballot, look up your Supervisor of Elections office [**here**](https://dos.elections.myflorida.com/supervisors/), then follow the site’s instructions to get a ballot mailed to you. If you’re **voting early,** this means you need to mail your ballot between Oct. 29 and Nov. 5, _or_ you can **drop your ballot off at any polling center** or ballot drop box on Nov. 8.

Now that you’re registered, how do you plan on voting this year?

On Election Day, probably

Vote by mail

Vote by mail early

**There’s no wrong way to vote!**
[This is how you request a vote-by-mail ballot](https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/for-voters/voting/vote-by-mail/). [This is how you find your polling place](https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/for-voters/check-your-voter-status-and-polling-place/voter-precinct-lookup/).

If you’re voting by mail, when is the latest you can drop off your ballot?

October 29

When the polls close at 7 p.m. on Nov. 8.

When polls close on Nov. 8.
[According to the Florida Division of Elections](https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/for-voters/voting/vote-by-mail/), “A returned voted ballot must be received, regardless of postmark, by the Supervisor of Elections’ office no later than 7:00 p.m. (local time) on Election Day.”

When you go to the polls, what is the ONE thing you need to bring with you?

A smile

Camping supplies

Your ID with a signature

Bring your ID! Better yet, bring an ID that has your signature on it!
Though bringing snacks or water while you’re waiting in line isn’t a bad idea, the only thing you are required to bring is [one of these forms of ID](https://howto.vote/vote/en/fl.html) to vote: — A driver’s license — A government-issued photo ID card — A United States passport — A debit or credit card — A government employee photo identification card — A firearms license — A student photo ID issued by an accredited Florida university, college, or community/junior college — A United States military photo ID — A tribal photo ID — Any other photo ID issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the United States government or any state government _**Make sure your ID has your signature on it, or else poll workers will tell you to come back with an ID with a signature.**_

What should you do if you’re waiting in line to vote when the polls close at 7 p.m.?


Come back tomorrow

Go home and give up

Stay in line!
[According to the Florida Division of Elections](https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/for-voters/voting/election-day-voting/), “The polls are open on Election Day, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. (local time). Any voters waiting in line at 7:00 p.m. will have the opportunity to cast a ballot.”

True or false: You have to sign an affidavit to pick up a friend’s absentee ballot for them.



A [voter can designate a person to pick up their ballot](https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/for-voters/voting/vote-by-mail/). If you are picking up a ballot for someone (maybe it’s a neighbor who is mobility impaired, your elderly grandparents, or your roommate who works long hours), you have to sign this form to pick up their ballot to give to them. Additionally, you are only allowed to pick up two ballots for someone who is not in your immediate family.

Can you vote if you’ve been convicted of a crime?



Yes, but it depends.
You are allowed to vote if you have a misdemeanor on your criminal record. Those with felony convictions must have paid all the fines, restitution, and time served in order to vote. There are some exceptions for other felonies, but go [here to see what you need to do](https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/for-voters/voter-registration/constitutional-amendment-4felon-voting-rights/).

When can you request a provisional ballot?

When a poll worker can’t identify your eligibility

If you lost your ballot

If a poll worker can’t determine your elegibility
If a poll worker can’t find your info, it is [your right to cast your vote with a provisional ballot](http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0100-0199/0101/Sections/0101.048.html). When you vote with a provisional ballot, you will be given a written notice of rights. Then, you will have until 5 p.m. (local time) on Nov. 10 to [present further evidence of your eligibility](http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=0100-0199/0101/Sections/0101.048.html).

True or false: There is a Senate election this year.

Val Demings (D).](https://ballotpedia.org/United_State_Senate_election_in_Florida,_2022) Rubio has cosponsored [a bill that would ban abortions at 15 weeks in any state that doesn’t have tighter restrictions.](https://www.lgraham.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/3065785d-86b8-4d36-986a-72aa1c8f100c/protecting-pain-capable-unborn-children-from-late-term-abortions-act-.pdf)
