During the Primary Election, electors will vote for representatives within their party affiliations.

If opposed within their own parties, United States Senators, Representatives in Congress, State Representatives, and State Senators will be on the ballot. The five Constitutional Officers: the Clerk of Courts, Property Appraiser, Sheriff, Supervisor of Elections, as well as Tax Collector, will also appear on the ballot if they are opposed within their party. Voters may also see County Commissioners and precinct committee men and women depending on their jurisdiction.

Because Florida is a closed primary state, voters may only vote within their party. The winning candidates of the Primary Election, who see opposition from another party, will then move on to the General Election in November.

Universal Primary: A Universal Primary is a contest in the Primary Election in which all candidates have the same party affiliation, but will not see opposition during the General Election. During a Universal Primary, all qualified electors may vote regardless of their party affiliation.
