Early Voting Activity Reports
Early Voting activity reports are available once Early Voting has started for an election and continue until the Early Voting period ends. The reports provide a daily listing of voters who have voted at each Early Voting site in the county. The reports are open to the public.

Vote-by-Mail ballot activity reports are available starting 60 days before an election through 15 days after Election Day. The reports provide a daily listing of voters who have requested a Vote-by-Mail ballot. The reports also provide updates when the ballot is mailed to the voter and returned to the Elections Office.
Under Florida law, these reports are only available to the following entities:
- Canvassing boards
- Election officials
- Political parties or officials thereof
- Candidates who have filed qualification papers and are opposed in an upcoming election
- Registered political committees for political purposes only.
If you qualify under one of these provisions, you may request access to the Vote-by-Mail Ballot activity reports.
Voter Information as a Public Record
Most voter registration information is a public record including voters’ names, addresses, dates of birth, party affiliations, phone numbers, and email addresses. However, voters’ Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers or state identification card numbers, and the source of voter registration applications cannot be released or disclosed to the public. Voter signatures can be viewed, but not copied.
Voters with high risk professions or who have been the victim of certain crimes can request that their information be protected from disclosure.
- If you have been a victim of domestic violence or stalking, contact the Attorney General’s Office’s Bureau of Advocacy and Grants Management at (850) 414-3300 for instructions on how to become a participant in the Address Confidentiality Program.
- If you have a high-risk profession, you can submit a written request to each agency that may have your information. Please complete the Public Records Exemption Request form (PDF) to submit your request.
