Vote By Mail


 


A registered voter may request a Vote-by-Mail ballot online, by telephone, mail, email, fax, or in person, to be mailed to or picked up by the voter. Vote-by-Mail ballots must be returned to the elections office by 7pm on Election Day in order to be counted. 


Please note - MAIL your ballot in time to be received by the Supervisor of Elections office no later than 7pm on Election Day. Be aware, as of January 10, 2015, USPS first class mail can take between 3-5 days for delivery, so mail at least 5 days before Election Day.


If you are a civilian, not overseas, who wants the ballot mailed to an address not in your voter record, please complete and submit this form. The form can be mailed, emailed or faxed to our office.


Please do not rely on having your ballot forwarded from your home address. Vote-by-mail ballots are non-forwardable and will be returned as undeliverable. (F.S. 101.62(4)(c)1).

Vote by Mail Information

You may designate in writing a member of your immediate family to pick up a ballot for you, no earlier than four days before an election by providing required information. The designee for pick-up must provide identification. You can also have someone else return your ballot. Candidates may not pick up or return ballots for anyone except members of his/her immediate family.


Vote-by-Mail ballots must be returned to either one of our two offices by 7 p.m. Central Time on election day in order to be counted. However, if you are overseas and voting in a presidential primary or general election, your ballot must be dated or postmarked by the date of the election, and we must receive it within 10 days of the election for it to be counted.


A single request for a Vote-by-Mail ballot by any voter (not just overseas voters) is good for all elections for two (2) general election cycles. For example, any request for ballots in the 2014 elections is good through November 2016.


You may vote early in one of our four early voting locations during a designated period prior to an election. For more details about early voting please click here.
