- Voters and election workers are reminded to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like COVID 19 by taking everyday precautions.
- Please bring your own mask – our election workers will be wearing theirs.
- Hand sanitizer will be provided at check-in, as well as a disposable stylus to sign your name.
- Feel free to bring your own blue or black ink pen to mark your ballot.
- Please help us by practicing social distancing while in line and voting. We will be limiting the number of people inside the polling room and sanitizing the surfaces regularly.
- Registration books closed October 6. New registrations may not be made at the polling place.
- If you are unsure of your registration status, call 595-3900, check EscambiaVotes.gov, or e-mail us at [email protected]. If you need to update your address, contact us prior to Election Day so you can be directed to your proper polling location.
- Early voting ended on Saturday, October 31. If you have not yet voted or did not request a vote-by-mail ballot, you must go to your designated precinct on Election Day.
- Confirm the location of your polling place prior to Election Day:It is listed on your sample ballot, voter information card, online at EscambiaVotes.gov, or call 595-3900.
