Voting is easy in Florida. There are three ways that voters can cast a ballot in the Florida Special Election on March 11, 2014.
Voters are eligible to:
Vote by Mail • Early Vote • Vote in Person on Election Day
VOTE By Mail
Any registered voter may vote by mail. All voters are encouraged to vote by mail and avoid standing in line for the same ballot at the polls. In order to register to vote by mail, you must request a vote by mail ballot from the supervisor of elections.
You may request a ballot by submitting a request form online at: https://www.votepinellas.com/?id=1471.
- In many cases, if you mail in your ballot you do not need an ID
- If you are requesting a ballot to be mailed to an address other than the voting address on file with the Supervisor of Elections, the request must be in writing and the request must be signed by the voter.
- All requests for a vote by mail ballot must be received by the Supervisor of Elections no later than 5 PM on Wednesday, March 5.
- Voters may pick up mail ballots in person through the day before Election Day.
- When submitting a vote by mail ballot, follow the instructions exactly, attach the proper postage stamp and put it in the mail or drop it off at a supervisor of elections office. Note: many people forget to sign and date their envelope so don’t forget this step.
- Convenient ballot drop-off locations are available during designated dates and times throughout the county.
- If you make a mistake or have questions, call (727) 464-VOTE (8683) to request another ballot.
