Miami-Dade: Last Day to Request Mail-in Ballot Is Saturday

If you plan to vote by mail ahead of the August 23 primary, the last day to request a mail-in ballot in Miami-Dade County is this Saturday by 5 p.m.

The best and easiest way to request a mail-in ballot is by calling 311 or by requesting it online.

For those who vote by mail, here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Submit the request by Saturday, August 13 at 5 p.m.
  • Sign INSIDE the white box on the back of the return envelope
  • Make sure the signature on the envelope matches the one on file
  • Make sure the ballot is received by the Miami-Dade Elections Department by August 23.

There are several ways to return the ballot:

  • By mail: No postage is needed when mailing the ballot
  • At any early polling location: You can drive up to a ballot drop-off location at one of the 23 early voting sites.
  • In-person: You can drop off your ballot through election day between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Miami-Dade Elections Department or the Stephen P. Clark Voter Information Center.

To prepare for the August 23 primary, Miami-Dade sent out brand new voter information cards following redistricting, which is when new district lines are drawn to adjust for population rates.
