David H. Stafford announced that the first vote-by-mail ballots for the November 8, 2022 General Election are being sent to military and overseas voters today. The mailing of civilian ballots will be mailed no later than October 6 to those who have already requested them. Federal and state law require military and overseas ballots to be sent no later than 45 days prior to a federal election. Florida law establishes a window for mailing civilian ballots between 40 and 33 days prior to election day.
Any Florida voter can choose to vote by mail. If you have not already made a request and wish to receive your ballot in the mail, visit EscambiaVotes.gov/vote-by-mail or call us at (850) 595-3900. The request deadline is October 29.
Escambia County voters can track the status of their vote-by-mail ballot in one of two ways: by signing up to receive e-mail or text messages, or by checking the status on our website. Visit EscambiaVotes.gov/track-my-ballot for more information.
