Here is information compiled by the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office for the 2022 elections in Tampa Bay area counties.

There’s general information for everyone as well as county-by-county information.

The Hillsborough SOE reminds us that “voters may only vote in the county in which they reside, and that counties in Florida hold Early Voting for different periods of time depending on what works best in each county.”

The deadline to register to vote in the 2022 general election was October 11, 2022.

There are three ways to vote

1. Vote By Mail

Contact your Supervisor of Elections Office no later than October 29th (but preferably sooner!) to request that a ballot be mailed to you, or you may pick up a mail ballot at an elections office in your county. Mail ballots must be received by your Supervisor of Elections no later than 7:00 p.m. November 8.

What to Know about Vote By Mail

— Don’t forget to sign your Vote By Mail envelope before returning it.

— Make sure you have a current signature on file with your Supervisor of Elections Office. You can update your signature by completing a printed or online voter registration application. (An online application will add your most recent Florida Driver License or Florida ID signature to your voter

record.)

— Be consistent when signing your mail ballot return envelope. Signatures are compared to those on file with the elections office.

— You may mail your ballot back or drop it in a secure ballot intake station at your local elections offices or Early Voting sites (during Early Voting).

Check with your local elections office for more information on secure ballot intake station locations.

— If you mail the ballot back, make sure to allow plenty of time for it to be received. We recommend that you allow at least a week for your mailed ballot to reach your elections office. If your ballot isn’t in your county’s elections office by 7:00 p.m. Election Day, it will not be counted.

2. Early Voting

During Early Voting, you may vote at any Early Vote site in your county.

Dates, times and locations vary by county (see list below). Important: you must vote in the county you live in.

What to Bring to an Early Vote Site

— Current and valid photo and signature ID. Acceptable forms of identification include: 

  • FL Driver License, FL ID Card (issued by DHSMV)
  • US Passport
  • Debit or Credit Card
  • Military ID
  • Student ID
  • Retirement Center ID
  • Neighborhood Association ID
  • Public Assistance ID
  • Veteran Health ID (issued by VA)
  • Concealed Weapon License (issued pursuant to s. 790.06)
  • Government Employee ID

If you do not bring ID, you may vote a provisional ballot.

— Your sample ballot. You may mark your sample ballot and use it as a reference.
