News Release - New Voter Cards on the Way

Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford announces all voters in Escambia County will be mailed a new voter information card in the coming days. The new cards will be in green text, making identification of the most current card simpler. The updated card reflects Escambia County’s State Senate District number change to District 1. Voters are strongly encouraged to review their new cards carefully, particularly their party affiliation and polling location.

Voters should be on the lookout for their new card, and contact the elections office immediately with any necessary updates. Voter information cards are NOT required when voting; Florida requires approved photo and signature ID when voting in person.

Election Reminders:
• To request a vote-by-mail ballot, visit EscambiaVotes.com and complete the online request form, or call or email the elections office.
• Florida holds closed primary elections. When voting in a partisan primary election you may only vote for candidates in the political party in which you are registered.
