Hey Miami: Early voting for the 2020 Presidential Primary has begun

Early voting for the Presidential Preference Primary in Miami-Dade County started on Monday, March 2. You can vote early at any early voting location in Miami-Dade County. Are you Election Ready? You can see a full list of early voting locations below. Here are the dates and times:

  • Monday, March 2 - Friday, March 6 (7 am to 3 pm)
  • Saturday, March 7 - Sunday, March 8 (8 am to 4 pm)
  • Monday, March 9 - Friday, March 13 (11 am to 7 pm)
  • Saturday, March 14 - Sunday, March 15 (8 am to 4 pm)

Or you can wait to weigh in on the Democratic Party's nominee for president on Tuesday, March 17. 

Because Florida is a closed primary state, only registered Democrats will be able to vote in the Presidential Preference Primary. If you're registered with any party other than the Florida Democratic Party or as a no party affiliated (NPA) voter, the deadline has passed to change your party affiliation, but you may want to update to participate in local primaries in August.

If you want to receive a Vote-By-Mail ballot for the Presidential Preference Primary, make sure to request one here by March 7.

If you're already registered to vote as a Democrat, then you're all set—but don't stop there!

Because Vote-By-Mail ballots were printed some time ago, they include the names of some candidates who are no longer running for president. As of March 2, 2020, the following candidates are still in the race for president:

  • Joe Biden
  • Michael Bloomberg
  • Tulsi Gabbard
  • Bernie Sanders
  • Elizabeth Warren

And of course, two days before the Florida primary election, on Sunday, March 15, 2020, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party will be holding our Blue Forum and Fair. There will be booths for meet and greets with Democratic candidates and organizations that share our values; as well as food and a cash bar. Later in the day, there will be a Mayoral Forum featuring several Democratic candidates for county mayor.

We will be seeing many more presidential candidates in Florida at this time, so stay tuned for details about special guests at this convention.
