Voter Registration - New and Removed
Under Florida law, a registered voter may only be removed from the official list of registered voters in the Florida Voter Registration System by a Supervisor of Elections for any one or more of the following reasons:
- Voter is determined to be ineligible (e.g., adjudication of mental incapacity without voting rights restored, felony conviction without voting rights restored, death, not a U.S. citizen, did not list a valid Florida residence, determined to be fictitious person)
- Voter moved out of state and either the voter or the out-of-state election official notifies the State or the Supervisor of Elections
- Voter asks in writing to be removed from the rolls
- An inactive voter fails to vote, change/update his or her voter registration record, or request a vote-by-mail ballot for two subsequent federal general election cycles after being placed in inactive status. A registered voter status changes from active to inactive when the voter does not respond to a pre-addressed, postage paid address confirmation final notice within 30 days about whether their registration address is still valid. An inactive voter remains eligible to vote until he or she is removed from the official list of registered voters.
The chart below shows the number of new voters added to the official list of registered voters. The chart also shows the number of registered voters removed from the official list of registered voters as recorded in the Florida Voter Registration System. Note that the chart reflects data based solely on one or more of the removal reasons listed above and used to report biennially to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s Election Administration and Voting Survey.
