BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The 2022 Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, August 23. Since Florida is a closed primary state, only voters registered with a political party are eligible to vote in that party’s Primary Election races.

However, all registered voters, despite party affiliation, may vote in non-partisan races and universal primary contests where all candidates are from the same party.

“There have been a lot of legislative changes to elections over the past two years, so it is important for voters to be election ready before heading to the polls,” said Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott.

“It’s also a redistricting year, so voters are encouraged to verify any changes reflected on their new voter information card or by visiting VoteBrevard.gov and clicking on the “Registration Status” quick link.”

“There have been a lot of legislative changes to elections over the past two years, so it is important for voters to be election ready before heading to the polls,” said Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott.

The deadline to register to vote in the 2022 Primary Election, also known as book closing, is July 25. This is also the last day to change your political party affiliation to be in effect in the Primary Election. Voters can visit any of the four administrative offices or visit VoteBrevard.gov to update their voter record or register to vote.

Early Voting for the 2022 Primary Election will be conducted from August 13th – August 20th at 10 locations throughout Brevard.

For locations and times, select the “Early Voting” tab at the top of the page on the VoteBrevard.gov website. As a reminder, voters may cast their ballot at any Early Voting site.

Voters not already on the mail ballot request list have until 5 p.m. on August 13 to request a mail ballot be mailed to them before the August 23 Primary.

Domestic mail ballots will be sent on July 21 and the Military and Overseas mail ballots were sent out on July 8.

Voters currently on the mail ballot request list but who wish to cancel their request should call the Mail Ballot Department at 321-633-2127.

Secure ballot intake stations (formerly known as drop boxes) are available at all four administrative Supervisor of Elections Offices and all 10 Early Voting sites. Due to recent legislative changes, secure ballot intake stations are no longer available 24 hours.
