What process would a state have to have if they wanted to go Independent of the USA?

I know this will never happen, but technically if the majority of voters in lets say Florida voted to be an Independent Nation then would the US Government have to grant them independence? How does that go or is it banned by law from ever happening?

    There IS no such process.

    They cannot secede.

    Please look up THE CIVIL WAR.

    Also look for Supreme Court ruling from 1869 - White v Texas. No state has the right to secede.
