Ballot station to be available on Monday

Vote by mail ballot envelope

Alachua County voters can return vote-by-mail ballots to an intake station at the Supervisor of Elections office starting on Monday.

The ballots can be left anytime from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the station, located outside the building, from now until election day on Tuesday, Aug. 23. The office opens at 8:30 a.m., so residents can also head to the third floor in that half hour gap before the drop-off box opens.

When early voting starts on Aug. 13, six additional secure drop-off stations will open to the public for vote-by-mail ballots. Those locations are also limited to 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. because of Senate Bill 90 that passed in May 2021.

After early voting ends on Aug. 20 at 6 p.m., the six additional stations will close. But the station at the Supervisor of Elections Office will remain available on Aug. 21 and 22 from 9 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on Aug. 23 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Alachua County voters can still request a vote-by-mail ballot until 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 13. You can request the ballot online, in person, by phone, fax, mail or email.

The Supervisor of Elections Office also reminds citizens that it must receive mailed ballots by 7 p.m. on election day and encourages voters to send ballots well in advance.
