Notice of Rights for Provisional Ballot Voters
If this is a primary election, you should contact your supervisor of elections’ office immediately to confirm that you are registered and can vote in the general election.
You have the right to provide written evidence supporting your eligibility to vote to the Supervisor of Elections no later than 5:00 p.m. of the second day following the election.
If you voted a provisional ballot because your Florida driver license card number, Florida state identification card number, or the last four digits of your social security card number could not or has not yet been verified, bring your card in person or provide a copy via mail, fax, or e-mail to the Supervisor no later than 5:00 p.m. (local time) of the second day following the election.
If you voted this ballot solely because you did not have the proper photo and signature identification, you do not have to provide any further proof of your eligibility, provided you are otherwise registered and entitled to vote in the precinct where you cast your ballot, and the signature on your ballot certificate and affirmation or the provisional ballot cure affidavit matches the signature on your voter registration record.
If you forgot to sign your ballot certificate or your signature does not match the one we have on record, you have the right to cure that omission or mismatch. Your Supervisor of Elections will try to reach by email, text, or phone to notify you of the problem with your signature and how to fix the problem. The form for the signature cure affidavit is available below and on the Division of Elections’ website at: https://dos.myflorida.com/elections/ under Forms. The deadline to submit your cure is 5:00 p.m. (local time) on the second day following the election.
You have the right to find out no later than 30 days following the election if your ballot was counted, and if not, the reason why. Check the status of your provisional ballot below or call the Marion County Election Center at 352-620-3290. The canvassing board is required to canvass and count a provisional ballot in accordance with Section 101.048, F.S.
