With a little more than 100 days to go before the August primary election, now is the time for voters to prepare. One way to get ready is to request a mail ballot, which allows voters to avoid the lines on Election Day and vote from the convenience of their home. Escambia County voters will be receiving a post card from Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford with instructions on how to request to vote by mail for the August primary and November general elections.
Voters have several ways to make their request:
1. Visit EscambiaVotes.com and click Absentee Voting in the upper right hand corner. Follow the instructions for completing the online request form.
2. Send an email to [email protected]. Voters must include their address and date of birth with their e-mail request.
3. Contact the Supervisor of Elections office by phone (850-595-3900), or in person.
4. Send a request through the mail or via fax (850-595-3914). Written requests must include the voter’s address, date of birth, and signature.
Absentee voters may track the status of their ballot by clicking Track My Ballot at EscambiaVotes.com. And by clicking Am I Registered? on the home page, a voter can verify their registration status, check their precinct number and location, party affiliation, and important future election information.
Absentee ballots can be requested for up to two election cycles. As Florida does not allow for a permanent absentee voter designation, voters must periodically renew their absentee request so be sure to verify your absentee ballot status. For further information on absentee ballots, early voting, or precincts and polling locations, please contact us at (850) 595-3900, [email protected] or visit EscambiaVotes.com.
