GENERAL ELECTION

NOVEMBER 6, 2018

WHAT IS A GENERAL ELECTION

A General Election is an election held on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November in the even-numbered years, for the purpose of filling national, state, county, and district offices and for voting on constitutional amendments not otherwise provided for by law.

ARE YOU ELECTION READY?

Your Supervisor of Elections wants to know -
Are You Election Ready?" With the 2018 General Election less than 60 days away we would like to encourage you to check your voter status now. Ask yourself these four simple questions:
Am I Registered to Vote?
Has My Name Changed?
Do I Need to Update My Signature?
Have I Moved Since I Last Voted?

BOOK CLOSING DATE - OCTOBER 9, 2018

The Voter registration books are now open and now is the time to make sure you are election ready. The book closing date is the statewide deadline to register to vote. The book closing date for the General Election is October 9, 2018. If you need to register to vote, you may take advantage of registering online by choosing the Register to Vote/Update Current Registration tab above. Once the registration books close, only updates to a voter's name, address and signature shall be permitted.

Please call you Supervisor of Elections office at 850-838-3515 to verify your voter registration status, or you may also click on the My Registration/Vote By Mail Status tab above and follow the prompts.

VOTE BY MAIL VOTING

The General Election ballot is a lengthy two-page ballot. Now would be a great time to consider your options for voting and decide if voting by mail is the right choice for you. Any registered voter may vote a 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 a mail ballot. The Supervisor of Elections office will mail vote by mail ballots to absent stateside and overseas uniformed service voters and overseas civilian voters for the General Election no later than Friday, September 21, 2018. All other mail ballots will be mailed beginning October 2, 2018 per Florida Statute.

You can now track your vote by mail ballot by calling the elections office at 850-838-3515 or by clicking on the My Registration/Vote By Mail Status tab above and following the prompts.
