Dear Killearn Lakes Voter,

The August 20 Primary Election is fast approaching. As your Supervisor of Elections, I want to make sure you have all the information you need to cast your ballot. So, please take a few minutes to read this key information about the election. That way you will be Election Ready! If you have any questions, please visit our website at, or give us a call at 850-606-8683. We are here to help!


View your Sample Ballot

Your sample ballot is ready for you. You can view your sample ballot by using our Voter Information Lookup. This way, you will know the specific races and candidates that will appear on your actual ballot.


Party Affiliation in the Primary Election

All registered voters in Leon County can vote in the Primary. All voters can vote in the nonpartisan races on the ballot and there is also a “Universal Primary” which will appear on everyone’s ballots. Some of the choices on the ballot depend on your political party. You can only vote in a partisan contest if you are a member of that party.


Voter Registration for the Primary

The voter registration and party change deadline for the Primary Election is July 22. You can check your current voter registration information using our Voter Information Lookup or by calling our office. If you need to update your address or other information, the easiest way is by using Florida’s Online Voter Registration System


Ways to Vote in the Primary Election

As with all Florida elections, you can vote in the Primary using any of these methods: by Mail, Early, or on Election Day.



With a Vote-by-Mail (VBM) ballot, you can vote from the comfort of home. And starting with this election, you no longer need a stamp to return your ballot by mail! We are now prepaying the return postage on your Vote-by-Mail ballot envelope, making it even easier to Vote-by-Mail. We’ve also redesigned our Vote-by-Mail ballot envelopes, so if you have requested one, keep a lookout for the new envelope in your mailbox. You can learn more about the free postage and new envelopes here.


The easiest way to request a VBM ballot is by using our online Mail Ballot Request form. You can check the status of your request using our Voter Information Lookup. If you prefer, you can also call our office. Please note that a recent change in Florida law requires voters to request a VBM ballot for each election year. Visit our Vote-by-Mail page to learn more about voting by mail.


If you've requested a Vote-by-Mail ballot and want updates about your ballot, you can sign up for BallotTrax. With BallotTrax, you can receive email or text notifications when your ballot is mailed, when we receive it, and when we count it. Sign-up for BallotTrax here!


Early Voting

Early Voting makes voting in person easy and convenient. Early Voting sites are open from Saturday, August 10 through Sunday, August 18, with hours varying by location. You can vote at any of the 10 Early Voting sites located throughout Leon County. Visit our Early Voting page to view a list of locations and times.


Voting on Election Day

Election Day is your last chance to vote! Voting hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20. On Election Day, you must vote at your assigned polling place. You can find your polling place on your Voter Information Card. You can also look it up online using our Voter Information Lookup


With this information, you should be Election Ready for the 2024 Primary Election! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at or (850) 606-8683.
