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:

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.
