Florida does not allow same-day voter registration during the early voting periods. That means only registered voters can take part in the Nov. 8 election.
There is no deadline to update your voting address in Florida. Registered Florida voters can update their address at any early voting location in the county where they now live or at the Election Day polling place for their new residence.
Nationally, in 2020 the electorate broke early voting records with nearly 70% of voters casting a ballot by mail and/or before Election Day.
