Florida's 2004 presidential primary election was held on March 9, 2004. As the incumbent president, George W. Bush, was running for re-election on the Republican Party ticket, only the Democratic Party held a primary. A referendum on charter government in Escambia County was also on the ballot.

As Florida has closed primaries, Republicans and Democrats may only vote in their party's primary. Independents of those affiliated with minor parties may not vote in either primary, but were allowed to vote on the property tax referendum.
