The Escambia County Supervisor of Elections Office today delivered more than 30,000 vote-by-mail ballots to the post office for the November 6 General Election. An additional to 5,600+ ballots were sent to military and overseas voters in late September.
Voters who have requested to vote-by-mail should begin receiving their green or ivory colored ballot packages by the end of the week. Voted ballots must be received in the Supervisor of Elections Office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day, November 6 and require a $.50 first-class postage stamp if returned by mail. The U.S. Postal Service recommends voters mail ballots at least one week before the due date. Ballots may also be returned by hand to the Supervisor of Elections Office.
The deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the General Election is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31. To request a vote-by-mail ballot or track the status of your ballot, visit EscambiaVotes.com and click “Vote by Mail”, or contact the Supervisor of Elections Office at 595-3900.
