Registered Florida voters must show ID at the polls to vote. If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. In order for your ballot to be counted, you have the right to present written evidence supporting your right to vote by not later than 5 p.m. on second day following the election. Otherwise, signature matching will determine if your ballot will be counted.
