Legislative Getting Started

WHO IS RUNNING FOR OFFICE?

One of the first fundamentals of being an informed voter is to find out who is running for office. Remember there are local, state and federal elections and you will need to know what districts you are in. Pull out that Voter Information Card or go back to the VOTING DISTRICTS PAGE and use that information.
Under the election laws candidates have certain rules and procedures they have to follow. After the candidate has declared their intent to run and filed the necessary paperwork, they will be listed on the Supervisor of Elections website. The Florida Supervisor of Elections will not list the candidates running in city, county or local races. You will need to contact the Supervisor of Elections office for your county.

Each county also has their own website, they have various addresses and the easiest way to locate them is to do a search for “your county name supervisor of elections office”.

Your local office will also be listed in the phone book and their staff will gladly answer any questions as well as give you their web address.
