2020 Federal and State Legislators

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Because Florida is a “closed primary" state, a voter must affiliate with a political party in advance of the Primary Election in order to participate in that party’s primary. Voters may vote for any candidate, regardless of party, in the General Election.

As candidates file before the Aug. 25, 2020 Primary Election, we’ll update our candidates list and profiles. We’ve included incumbents for the moment, as many will likely run again.

Below are the federal and state seats that represent Monroe County in Washington, DC and Tallahassee, FL. Please click italics for district maps.
