Register to Vote



Sarasota County residents may apply to register to vote or update their existing voter registration in a variety of ways. 

  • By mail by completing the Florida Voter Registration Application:
    • English
    • Español

      Mailing Address:
      Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections
      P.O. Box 4194
      Sarasota, FL 34230-4194 

You may also hand-deliver the application to any supervisor of elections office in the state, a driver license office, a voter registration agency or armed forces recruitment office, or to the Division of Elections.

If your application is complete and you qualify as a voter, the supervisor of elections will mail you a voter information card as official confirmation that you are registered to vote. Make sure the information on your card is correct. If you do not receive confirmation within two weeks, or if you have any questions, call our Voter Services team 941.861.8619.

To register to vote in Florida, you must:

  • Be a Florida resident
  • Be 18 years old
  • Not now be adjudicated mentally incapacitated with respect to voting in Florida or any other state

Keeping your voter information current is an important part of the voting process. You can update your voter information online at or by calling or visiting one of our three office locations. Visit our Update Your Voter Information page to learn more.
A person who is otherwise qualified may pre-register on or after his/her 16th birthday and may vote in any election on or after his/her 18th birthday. Once pre-registered, a person may work with the elections office as a poll worker. Learn more about becoming a student poll worker.
