All voters in Escambia County will be mailed a new voter information card beginning this week. The new cards will be blue, making identification of the most current card simpler. The updated card reflects precinct changes approved over the past few months by the County Commission following the 2010 Census. Voters will also see their newest House and Senate districts approved earlier this year by the Florida Legislature. With all these changes, voters should review their new cards carefully, particularly their precinct and polling location.
Voters should be on the lookout for their new card, and contact the elections office immediately with any necessary updates. Voter information cards are NOT required when voting; Florida requires photo and signature ID when voting in person.
Election Reminders: Voters can still request to vote by mail (an absentee ballot) and update their voter record. To request a ballot, visit EscambiaVotes.com and complete the online request form, or call or email the elections office.
