Saturday is the Deadline to Request a Mail Ballot

Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford reminds voters who wish to be mailed a vote-by-mail ballot for the August 23 Primary Election to request their ballot no later than Saturday, August 13. Voters can make their request by using the online form at or by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone, e-mail, or fax. Requests must include the voter’s date of birth, address, and their Florida Driver’s License or Florida ID Card number or the last 4 digits of their social security number.

The U.S. Postal Service recommends voters mail ballots at least one week before the due date. Return postage has been paid for the 2022 elections in Escambia County. Completed vote-by-mail ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, August 23. Voters may also drop-off their vote-by-mail ballot at the Elections Office or at any of the ten area early voting locations during early voting hours. Visit for a listing of early voting hours and locations. Voters are prohibited from returning their completed vote-by-mail ballot at an Election Day polling place.

After Saturday’s deadline, a voter may still pick up a vote-by-mail ballot in person from the Elections Office through Monday, August 22.

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.
