On Tuesday, August 20th, Duval County voters will go to the polls to vote in several local, state, and national races. The races for the School Board are open to all registered voters. To win, candidates need to reach 50% + 1. If no candidates reach 50%, a runoff election will occur with the two (2) top vote-getters during the Presidential General Election, on Tuesday, November 5th.

Additionally, since Florida is a closed primary state, only registered Democrats can vote in the following primary races: U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Florida Senate, and Florida House of Representatives.

How to Vote in Person if Vote-by-Mail Ballot was Requested

A voter who has requested a ballot may still vote in person. The Supervisor of Elections’ office will need to confirm that a mail ballot has not already been returned and received. If the ballot has not been received, the voter will be allowed to vote on a regular ballot. If the ballot has been received, the ballot is deemed cast and the voter has voted. If the voter believes the office is incorrect for whatever reason, the voter is allowed to vote a provisional ballot.



The precinct is an administrative designation establishing the geographic boundaries of the smallest voting district. All voters in a given precinct vote at the same location on Election Day, using the same ballot—same candidates, same ballot questions.


The Florida Democratic Party is working every day to ensure every eligible Floridian has the opportunity to cast a ballot and have that ballot counted. Because all politics is local, our county voter protection teams work to protect the vote in their respective communities. Through the Voter Protection Assistance Hotline, we answer questions from voters and prospective electors from all 67 counties in English, Spanish, or Haitian Creole.
