Any registered voter may request an absentee mail ballot. Requests can be accepted only from the voter, a member of the voter’s immediate family or legal guardian. Please call the elections office at 850-838-3515 to request an absentee mail ballot. The Supervisor of Elections office will mail absentee mail ballots to absent stateside and overseas uniformed service voters and overseas civilian voters for the Presidential Preference Primary Election on January 29, 2016. All other absentee mail ballots will be mailed beginning February 9, 2016 per Florida Statute. The Presidential Preference Primary Election is a partisan Republican and Democratic Primary only, therefore only voters who are registered Republican or Democrat will be receiving an absentee mail ballot for the March election.
You can now track your absentee mail ballot. Visit the Supervisor of Elections website at www.taylorelections.com; click on My Absentee Status, then just follow the prompts. If you do not have access to a computer you can still call the elections office at 850-838-3515, we will be glad to assist you with any of your election needs.
