Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford today sent absentee ballots to more than 5,200 military and overseas voters for the November 6 General Election. These voters will receive their ballot by mail, fax, e-mail or online delivery, depending on the delivery method they chose. Civilian absentee ballots are scheduled to be mailed on October 2. Under Federal and State law, absent military and overseas voters with an absentee ballot request on file are sent their ballot no later than 45 days prior to the election. Florida law stipulates that civilian ballots be mailed no sooner than 35 days before Election Day.
Stafford also announced that sample ballots for the General Election are available online for voters to review.
