Sample ballots for the August 23 Primary Election are being mailed to Escambia County voters this week. The sample ballot, in both English and Spanish, includes a ballot image, the voter’s polling location and information on the three ways to vote: early, vote-by-mail, and on Election Day. A sample ballot is also available at EscambiaVotes.gov.
Voters have three different ways to cast their ballot:
By Mail: Voters may vote by mail using a vote-by-mail ballot, which can be requested through the online form at EscambiaVotes.gov, or by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850) 595-3900, e-mail, or fax (850) 595-3914. Requests must include the voter’s date of birth, address, and the last 4 digits of their social security number or their Florida Driver’s License or ID Card number. Requests must be received no later than Saturday, August 13. Voted ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day and may not be returned to a polling location on Election Day. Voters may drop-off a vote-by-mail ballot during Early Voting hours at any of the ten area locations.

At Your Precinct: The third option for voters is to cast a paper ballot at their precinct on Election Day, Tuesday, August 23. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Voters are encouraged to check their polling place closely, as several have changed since the last election.
In Florida’s closed partisan primary elections, you are only eligible to vote in primary contests for the party in which you are registered, unless it is a universal primary or nonpartisan contest. Your party affiliation, district and precinct determine which contests appear on your primary election ballot.
