Florida has closed primaries. In 2024, only the Republican Party is holding a Presidential Preference Primary in Florida. You must be registered with that party no later than February 20 to vote in their Primary Election

On the Ballot

The Presidential Preference Primary allows Florida's major parties to narrow down the field of candidates for president to move on to the General Election. Voters receive a ballot according to their party affiliation, and voters who are not affiliated with a major party are not eligible to vote in this election. This year, only the Republican Party is holding a Presidential Preference Primary in Florida.

Some party candidates for president have reportedly suspended their presidential campaigns. 

If a candidate did not submit a formal withdrawal before December 12, 2023, in accordance with section 103.101(3), Fla. Stat., the candidate nominee’s name must remain on the Presidential Preference Primary (PPP) ballot for his or her respective party. A vote cast for any candidate nominee appearing on the ballot will count as a vote for that candidate.
