Provisional Ballot Voting

If you vote a provisional ballot, you must be given a written notice of rights that includes: 

  1. A statement that you have the right to bring further evidence (if you choose) of your eligibility to the Supervisor of Elections. You have until 5 p.m. of the second day after the election to do so

  2. A statement that if you voted a provisional ballot solely because you did not bring in identification, you do not have to bring in further evidence of eligibility. The local canvassing board will count your ballot if you voted in the right precinct and the signature on the provisional ballot certificate matches the signature on the voter registration record.
  3. A statement that if you voted a provisional ballot because your personal identifying number could not be verified, you can provide in person or by copy through fax, e-mail, or mail a copy of the card with the identifying number to the Supervisor of Elections and that the deadline is 5 p.m. of the second day after the election to do so.
  1. Instructions on how you can find out after the election if your provisional ballot was counted, and if not, the reason(s) why.
  1. A statement that if this is a primary election, you should contact the Supervisor of Elections office immediately to confirm that you are registered and will be able to vote in the general election.

Always be sure that you are voting in the precinct that corresponds to your address of legal residence.

If you were issued a provisional ballot for an election administered by Indian River County, you may contact the Indian River County Supervisor of Elections at 772-226-4700 to review the current status of your ballot.  You must have the provisional ballot ID that was given to you at the time you received the provisional ballot.

Cure A Signature Mismatch

For a provisional ballot to be counted, the voter's signature provided on the provisional ballot envelope must match the voter's signature on file. Over time our signatures begin to change and those with physical disabilities or affected by a disease may have difficulty maintaining a consistent signature. Voters will be notified if the signature on their provisional ballot envelope and voter record don't match and will be provided the opportunity to cure their ballot no later than 5 p.m. on the 2nd day after the election.

If the signature on your provisional ballot envelope did not match the signature on your voter record, your ballot will not count unless you:

1. Complete and return the "Provisional Ballot Cure” Affidavit (Form DS-DE 210 (English PDF / EspaƱol PDF


2. Provide a copy of your identification no later than 5 p.m. the 2nd day after the election. Acceptable forms of identification are listed on the affidavit.

Please follow the instructions on the form carefully. Failure to follow these instructions may cause your ballot not to count.

Return your completed Affidavit and copy of your Identification to:
