General Election Sample Ballots on the Way to Voters
Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford announced today that sample ballots for the November 8 General Election are being mailed to Escambia County voters this week. The sample ballot includes a ballot image, the voter’s polling location and information on the three ways to vote: early, vote-by-mail, and on Election Day. A sample ballot is also available at EscambiaVotes.com.
Voters have three different ways to cast their ballot:
• By Mail: Voters may vote by mail using a vote-by-mail 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, November 2. 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. Vote-by-mail voters may track the status of their ballot at EscambiaVotes.com by clicking Track My Ballot.
