Election Day Tips for Escambia Voters

Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford today offered Escambia County voters some tips to prepare for Election Day, Tuesday, August 28:

• Confirm the location of your polling place prior to Election Day: It is listed on your sample ballot, voter information card, online at EscambiaVotes.com, or call 595-3900.
• Several polling locations have changed since the last election. A list of the changes is below.
• Busiest times at the polls tend to be 7:00 a.m. until 9:00 a.m., and 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
• If you are unsure of your registration status, check EscambiaVotes.com, e-mail us at soe@escambiavotes.com, or call 595-3900.
• If you need to update your address, contact us prior to Election Day so you can be directed to your proper polling location.
• Photo and signature ID is required for all voters – if you do not present an approved form of ID, you may vote a provisional ballot.
• Be sure to review your sample ballot prior to Election Day in order to familiarize yourself with all of the contests and bring it with you to the polls. A sample ballot was mailed to all eligible voters, and you can view your sample ballot online at EscambiaVotes.com.
• Florida holds closed primary elections. In partisan primaries, you are only eligible to vote in contests for the party in which you are registered, unless it is a universal primary or nonpartisan contest.
• Remember to make only one selection per contest on your ballot.
• Registration books closed on July 30 – new registrations and party changes for this election may not be made at the polls.
• You may not return your completed vote-by-mail ballot to your precinct on Election Day – it must be returned to the Elections Office by 7 p.m.
• If you requested a vote-by-mail ballot but chose not to return it and wish to vote at your polling place instead, please bring your unvoted ballot package with you so it can be cancelled.
• Early voting ends today, Saturday August 25. If you have not yet voted or did not request a vote-by-mail ballot by August 22, you must go to your designated precinct on Election Day.

For further information, please contact us by phone at (850) 595-3900, e-mail us at soe@escambiavotes.com or visit EscambiaVotes.com.
