The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office has sent 45,000 vote-by-mail ballots for the Nov. 8 election and expects the ballots to arrive next week.
If the ballot doesn’t arrive by Oct. 17, voters who applied for the mail options should contact the elections office at 352-374-5252 or email@example.com.
Registered voters can still request vote-by-mail ballots until 5 p.m. on Oct. 29.
In a press release, the elections office said to mail the ballots at least a week before the election to ensure it arrives on time. Voters should also validate their information, signature and address.
Voters should remember the following:
- Completely fill in the oval next to your choice on your ballot — do not circle or mark an “X” over the oval.
- If you make a mistake on your ballot, call the Supervisor of Elections Office at 352-374-5252.
- Be sure to sign your vote-by-mail ballot certificate envelope.
- Return your vote-by-mail ballot in the official envelope provided. Return postage is prepaid.
The complete vote-by-mail ballots can also be dropped off from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Supervisor of Elections Office (515 N. Main St.).
