News Release – Deadline Approaching for Voter Registration and Party Changes

Pensacola, Florida – The Escambia County Supervisor of Elections office will hold extended hours on Monday, August 1, to allow voters to register or change parties before the book closing deadline for the Primary Election.

Office Hours:
• Monday, August 1 – 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Florida law mandates that registration books close 29 days before an election. New registrations and party changes must be completed and received or postmarked no later than August 1, in order for them to be effective for the August 30, election. Address changes can be made after the books close. If you are unsure of your registration status, visit and click Am I Registered?

Florida is a closed primary state. In a primary election, voters may only vote for candidates in their party of registration unless there is a universal primary contest, a nonpartisan contest, or other issue on the ballot.
