News Release: Are You Election Ready?
Are You Election Ready?
With the election approaching, it is important that voters prepare to exercise one of their most fundamental rights as Americans. As such, here are a few important questions for voters:
Are you registered?
If you are not sure, visit EscambiaVotes.com and click Am I Registered? to find out. If you are not registered, you have until October 4th to do so. Registering is quick and easy – visit EscambiaVotes.com or call us at 595-3900 to determine the most convenient way for you.
Have you moved since you last voted?
If so, we need to know your new address as soon as possible so we can make sure we update your registration and direct you to your proper polling location. Just call or e-mail us at [email protected]. It only takes a few minutes.
Do you wish to vote by mail?
Voting by mail (also known as absentee voting) is one of three different ways voters can cast a ballot. To request a ballot, complete the online request at EscambiaVotes.com, call us, or e-mail us at [email protected]. You can also confirm your request and follow the progress of your ballot by clicking Track My Ballot at EscambiaVotes.com.
Are you familiar with your polling location?
If you plan to vote on Election Day, make sure you know where your precinct votes (several polling locations have changed since the 2008 elections). To confirm, check your Sample Ballot or Voter Information Card, use the Precinct Finder at EscambiaVotes.com, or call or e-mail us.
Have you studied the candidates and issues?
With the entire Florida cabinet, U.S. Senator and Representative, state legislators, circuit judge, local races, the retention of judges and justices, and 8 statewide questions all facing voters, it is important to be familiar with your ballot prior to voting. We will send all voters a Sample Ballot prior to the start of Early Voting on October 18th. You can also check EscambiaVotes.com for a copy of your Sample Ballot and information on candidates and their campaign finances. There are many other sources of information on candidates and issues available to voters.Permalink
