News Release- October 31 Deadline for Ballot By Mail
Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford reminds voters who wish to be mailed an absentee ballot for the November 6 General Election to request their ballot no later than Wednesday, October 31. Voters can make their request by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850-595-3900), fax (850-595-3914), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by using the online form at EscambiaVotes.com. Requests must include the voter’s date of birth and address. Absentee voters may track the status of their ballot by clicking Track My Ballot at EscambiaVotes.com.
After Wednesday, a voter may still pick up an absentee ballot in person from the Elections Office. Voted absentee ballots must be received in the Elections Office (not at a polling location) no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6.
In addition to absentee voting, early voting is being offered from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. daily through Saturday at five area locations:

A third option for voters is to cast a ballot at their precinct on Election Day – polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Voters are encouraged to be sure to know where to vote on Election Day by checking their new Voter Information Card, sample ballot, the precinct finder at EscambiaVotes.com, or by contacting us by phone or e-mail prior to Election Day. Any voters who need to change their address should contact the elections office prior to Election Day. Voters must present a photo and signature ID at the polls, or must vote a provisional ballot.
