STEPS TO VOTE
PATIENT VOTING TEAM
The supervisor shall provide a vote-by-mail ballot to each elector by whom a request for that ballot has been made by one of the following means:
- By nonforwardable, return-if-undeliverable mail to the elector’s current mailing address on file with the supervisor or any other address the elector specifies in the request.
- By personal delivery before 7 p.m. on election day to the elector, upon presentation of the identification required in s. 101.043.
- By delivery to a designee on election day or up to 5 days prior to the day of an election.
Except as provided in s. 101.655, the supervisor may not deliver a vote-by-mail ballot to an elector or an elector’s immediate family member on the day of the election unless there is an emergency, to the extent that the elector will be unable to go to his or her assigned polling place. If a vote-by-mail ballot is delivered, the elector or his or her designee shall execute an affidavit affirming to the facts which allow for delivery of the vote-by-mail ballot.

Here is how COVID-19 is affecting Patient Voting in this state:
Florida is a no-excuse absentee voting state and any registered voter may request and vote by a mail-in ballot, so that you do not have to be physically present at a polling station in order to vote. More information on this process can be found here.
