Review your sample ballot

Did you know that you can prep before you vote? Be sure to review your sample ballot and even take yours with you when you cast your vote. Sometimes ballots are long and involved, and it’s challenging to remember everything. Think of your sample ballot as a study guide!  If you’re a registered voter in Orange County (which you are if you use your Rollins College address) you can find your sample ballot here.

Find your Florida Supervisor of Elections' website or visit Campus Vote Project to find your sample ballot if you vote outside of Florida.
