5 easy steps to vote-by-mail power!

Your VOICE = Your VOTE…but only if your ballot is completed correctly and delivered on time!

1. Vote the entire ballot: Every race matters in your daily life! For information about candidates and amendments in the General Election,click here. Place folded ballot in the green Secrecy Sleeve.

2. Sign your envelope: Once you’ve inserted the ballot & Secrecy Sleeve in the yellow envelope, seal and sign across the flap – use the signature like on your Florida drivers license or when you registered to vote – do NOT print or use a quick “credit card” signature or sign anyone else’s envelope!

3. Add your email and/or phone number to the envelope: If there is any issue with your signature, this information will be used to contact you to “cure” the problem and ensure your vote counts!

How to turn in your ballot: Mail, Drop Off, or Surrender.

4. Return your ballot; pick the option that you are most comfortable with: 

  • Mail your ballot (no postage needed!). If you need to send overnight, use USPS Express or Priority Mail – FedEx and UPS do not deliver to P.O. boxes.

  • Drop it off (or have someone drop it for you): starting September 29, Monday – Friday, 8:30am – 5:00pm at the 4 Elections offices; during Early Voting, October 19 – 31 at Early Vote sites; or on Election Day at the 4 Supervisor of Elections offices; or

  • Go to your regular polling place on election day, surrender your ballot and vote in person.
