Additional Rights as a Florida Voter:
- You have the right to vote in all the races on your ballot or in the races that you choose. You are NOT required to cast a vote in every race or on every ballot question.
- You have the right to vote even if you failed to bring photo or signature identification to the polling station. If you did not bring a photo ID, state law requires the poll workers to allow you to vote if your name is on the register and you sign a statement verifying your name and address. First time voters without photo ID may vote a provisional ballot. No one can be refused the right to vote solely because he or she failed to bring photo or signature ID to the polling place.
- You have the right to vote even if you did not bring your voter registration card to the polling place.
- You have the right to find out whether your provisional ballot has been counted.
