Sample Ballots are in the Mail
Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford announced today that sample ballots for the November 6 General election are being mailed to Escambia County voters this week. The sample ballot includes an image of the multi-page, multi-sheet ballot, the voter’s polling location and map, and information on early voting, absentee voting, and voting on Election Day. Voters are encouraged to study and mark their sample ballot and bring it with them 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, October 31. 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, October 27 through Saturday, November 3, from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Early voters will cast paper ballots through our digital scanners, and may choose any one of our five sites:
o Supervisor of Elections Main Office, 213 Palafox Place, Second Floor
o Supervisor of Elections Annex, 292 Muscogee Road, Cantonment
o West Florida Public Library, 200 West Gregory Street
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, November 6, 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 are encouraged to pay special attention to their polling location, as several have changed due to redistricting.
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: October 17th, 2012 00:00 - Permalink
