Orange County Supervisor of Elections mailing Notice of Elections to all registered voters
Registered voters in Orange County should receive a Notice of Elections from the elections office over the next week. This notice contains important information about the upcoming elections and reminds voters of their current party affiliation and vote-by-mail request status.
The Notice of Elections cannot be forwarded, so if you do not receive one, it is likely because the elections office does not have your correct address. Changing your address with the USPS does not automatically update it with the elections office.
“Mailing is one of the only reliable ways we have to reach all voters,” said Bill Cowles, Orange
County Supervisor of Elections. “That’s why it is so crucial for voters to update their address
with us, and keep their information updated.”
This year, every voter will see changes either to their precinct and/or elected officials because of
redistricting following the 2020 U.S. census. Once all districts are finalized, the elections office
will mail all voters a new voter information card that updates their districts and/or county polling
place. This card shows important information, however it is not required to vote.
“We encourage all voters to carefully read all official election mail we send, including the Notice
of Elections,” said Supervisor Cowles. “There will be a lot of changes due to redistricting, so it’s
important that voters review our mailings and check their information ahead of the elections to
make sure they’re prepared.”
In addition to the Notice of Elections and voter information card, in August the elections office
will also start mailing sample ballots for the Primary Election.
The Primary Election is August 23, 2022. The deadline for new Florida registrations or party
changes for the Primary Election is July 25, 2022. Florida is a closed primary state, however
there will be something for every registered voter to vote on in that election – not just those
affiliated with the major political parties.
The Orange County Supervisor of Elections office encourages voters to check their registration
anytime on their website, www.ocfelections.gov, where voters can also get accurate information
about voting and upcoming elections. Voters can also update their address by calling the office at
(407) 836-2070 or visiting the state’s website: www.RegisterToVoteFlorida.gov.
