Remember, Florida is a closed primary election state. In primary elections, registered voters can only vote for their registered party’s candidates in a partisan race on the ballot. Voters without a party affiliation may only vote for partisan candidates in a primary election if the candidates running for office all have the same party affiliation and the winner in the primary election will not face any opposition in the general election. This is referred to as a Universal Primary Contest.

Additionally, in a primary election all registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, can vote on any issue, nonpartisan race, and race where a candidate faces no opposition in the general election.
