Request Your Vote-By-Mail Ballot

If the page does not load properly, call or text 954-357-VOTE (8683) or email VBMrequest@BrowardVotes.gov.

Vote-by-Mail refers to voting on a ballot received by mail or picked up by or for a voter instead of going to the polls to vote during early voting or election day. Any registered voter can vote by mail. You can request a Vote-by-Mail ballot for a specific election or for all elections through the next general election. After the next general, you will need to make the request again.

If you are presently registered to vote in Broward County, you may request a Vote-by-Mail ballot online (see link below). You may also request a ballot by email, fax, phone or mail.

A Vote-by-Mail ballot is not forwardable by the U.S. postal service and a ballot returned undeliverable cancels a request for future elections and must be renewed. Notify us immediately if your mailing address changes or if you plan to be out of town. By law, special accommodations are available for military and overseas voters and voters with disabilities.

Under current Florida Laws, Vote-by-Mail requests are valid through the end of the calendar year of the next regularly scheduled general election. Voters who wish to receive a Vote-by-Mail ballot for 2023 through 2024 elections are required to complete a new Vote-by-Mail ballot request.
