Military/Overseas Voters

Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)


  • Notify the elections office of address changes so you don’t jeopardize your active voter registration status – email is the best way.
  • Ballots can be returned by fax, but not by email.  Access to faxed ballots in the elections office is extremely restricted and ballots are immediately placed in secrecy envelopes. Only the Voter’s Certificate, which must be signed and dated, is examined.
  • Military voters residing within the county in which they wish to register should use the Florida Voter Registration Application and indicate their military status, so the Supervisor may insure their UOCAVA status when they move out of the county but wish to maintain
    voting residency.

Additional information for UOCAVA voters is available from the Federal Voting Assistance Program, toll-free 1-800-438-8683, fax 1-800-368-8683, and email [email protected].
