Voting is your right and responsibility as a citizen. If you don’t vote, you lose your right to complain.
Florida is a closed primary state. In partisan office contests in a primary election, a voter may only vote for the candidates of the party in which he or she is registered. That is why different ballot styles exist in a primary election. The voter’s ballot style is tied to his or her party affiliation.
Voters registered with no party affiliation (NPA) are not eligible to vote for partisan candidates in a primary election unless a Universal Primary Contest (UPC) occurs.
All registered voters regardless of party affiliation are entitled to vote on non-partisan candidates and issues.
In a General Election, all registered voters receive the same ballot regardless of their party affiliation and are eligible to vote for any candidate.
