News Release- Sample Ballots for Special General Election
Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford announced today that sample ballots for the June 11 special general election are being mailed to Escambia County voters. The sample ballot includes the Florida House District 2 race (and for residents in the city of Pensacola, the municipal referendum), along with their polling place address and three early voting locations. Voters are encouraged to review their sample ballot before going to the polls.
Voters have three different ways to cast their ballot:
• By Mail: Voters may vote by mail using an absentee ballot, which can be requested through the online form at EscambiaVotes.com, or by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850-595-3900), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or fax (850-595-3914). Requests must include the voter’s date of birth and the address, and must be received no later than Wednesday, June 5. Voted ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day and may not be returned to a polling location on Election Day. Absentee voters may track the status of their ballot at EscambiaVotes.com by clicking Track My Ballot.
• Early Voting: Early voting will be available Saturday, June 1 through Saturday, June 8. Weekend hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and weekdays from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Early voters will cast paper ballots through our digital scanners, and may choose any one of three locations:
o Supervisor of Elections Main Office, 213 Palafox Place, Second Floor
o Southwest Branch Library, 12248 Gulf Beach Highway
o Tryon Branch Library, 1200 Langley Avenue
• At Your Precinct: The third option for voters is to cast a paper ballot at their precinct on Election Day, June 11, using our digital scanners. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. An AutoMARK ballot marking device is also available at each polling place and early voting site for persons with disabilities. Voters in Precincts 29 and 31 are encouraged to pay special attention to their polling location, as they have changed for this election only. Precinct 29 will be voting at Malcolm Yonge Center, 925 East Jackson Street and precinct 31 will be voting at the West Florida Public Library, 239 North Spring Street.
Voters are reminded to bring their photo and signature ID with them to the polls. A sample ballot is also available at EscambiaVotes.com.Published on: May 24th, 2013 00:00 - Permalink
