Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford announced today that sample ballots for the August 14 Primary election are being mailed to Escambia County voters this week. The sample ballot includes a ballot image, the voter’s polling location and information on early voting, absentee voting, and voting on Election Day. A sample ballot is also available at EscambiaVotes.com. Voters are encouraged to pay special attention to the polling location information, as many polling locations have changed.
Voters have three different ways to cast their ballot:
• By Mail: Voters may vote by mail using an absentee ballot, which can be requested through the online form at EscambiaVotes.com, or by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850-595-3900), e-mail ([email protected]), or fax (850-595-3914). Requests must include the voter’s date of birth and the address, and must be received no later than Wednesday, August 8. Voted ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day and may not be returned to a polling location on Election Day. Absentee voters may track the status of their ballot at EscambiaVotes.com by clicking Track My Ballot.
• Early Voting: Early voting will be available Saturday, August 4 and Sunday, August 5 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.; and from Monday, August 6 through Saturday, August 11 from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Early voters will cast paper ballots through our digital scanners, and may choose any one of the four sites:
o Supervisor of Elections Main Office, 213 Palafox Place, Second Floor
o Supervisor of Elections Annex, 292 Muscogee Road, Cantonment

• At Your Precinct: The third option for voters is to cast a paper ballot at their precinct on Election Day, August 14, using our digital scanners. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. An AutoMARK is also available at each polling place and early voting site for persons with disabilities.
Voters are reminded to bring their photo and signature ID with them to the polls, and are encouraged to contact the Elections Office by phone or e-mail with any questions.
