WEDNESDAY IS FINAL DAY TO REQUEST ABSENTEE BALLOTS FOR PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY ELECTION
Pensacola, Florida – Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford reminds voters who wish to be mailed an absentee ballot for the January 31 Presidential Preference Primary Election must request their ballot by close of business on Wednesday, January 25. Voters can make their request by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850-595-3900), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (850-595-3914), or by using the online form at EscambiaVotes.com.

After Wednesday, a voter may still pick up an absentee ballot in person from the Elections Office. Voted absentee ballots must be received in the Elections Office (not at a polling location) no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, January 31.
In addition to absentee voting, early voting is being offered from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. daily through Saturday at four area locations:

A third option for voters is to cast a ballot at their precinct on Election Day – polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Voters must present a photo and signature ID at the polls, or they must vote a provisional ballot. A touchscreen is also available at each polling place and early voting site for persons with disabilities.
