Here's your county-by-county sample ballot for the Florida primary in August

The upcoming Florida primary election is on Aug. 23.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Florida counties have started to release sample ballots for the upcoming primary election on Aug. 23.

The primary election is held to nominate party candidates to be voted for in the general election on Nov. 8. These candidates will fill national, state, county and district offices.

The offices that will be voted on to nominate candidates are:

  • State executive offices (governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, chief financial officer and agriculture commissioner)
  • United States senators
  • United States representatives
  • State legislators
  • Local offices (varies by municipality)

It's important to note that Florida is a closed primary state where you must be a registered member of a political party to vote for respective candidates in the August election. The party you're registered under, as well as your voting precinct, determines what your ballot will look like. You can vote if the races are nonpartisan.

The deadline to register for the primary election is July 25, and eligible individuals can register or update their registration here anytime before that.

As the primary election approaches, you may be wondering about the candidates you'll see on your ballot — who are they, and what do they stand for?

While some counties provide a general ballot for voters to look at, others have a link where you input your voter information to view your specific ballot.
