Presidential Preference Primary Election

What is the Presidential Preference Primary?

The Presidential Preference Primary Election (PPP) is part of the presidential nominating process for Florida’s two major political parties. Voters registered with those parties express their preference for the presidential candidate they would like to see representing their party on the General Election ballot in November.

After the PPP, designated political party delegates from Florida formally nominate the preferred presidential candidate at the respective party’s national convention. These national conventions are typically held in July or August. Based on the party rules governing delegate voting procedures, the party decides at the convention which presidential candidate will represent the party on the General Election ballot.

When is the Presidential Preference Primary?

Florida’s next Presidential Preference Primary is on March 19, 2024 (date subject to change). The deadline for voters to register to vote or update their party affiliation for the Presidential Preference Primary is 29 days before election day. Eligible voters can vote in the Presidential Preference Primary by mail, by voting early, or by voting at the polls on Election Day.

Who can vote in the Presidential Preference Primary?

Florida’s Presidential Preference Primary is a closed-primary election. This means that you must be registered with one of Florida’s major political parties to be eligible to vote in their Presidential Preference Primary.

However, local nonpartisan elections may be held at the same time as the Presidential Preference Primary Election. In those elections, all eligible voters can vote for those local races. For further information, please contact our office by calling 407-742-6000.
