News Release- Sample Ballots Headed to Voters

Escambia County Supervisor of Elections David H. Stafford announced today that sample ballots for the November 4 General election are being mailed to Escambia County voters beginning this week. The sample ballot includes a ballot image, the voter’s polling location and information on early voting, absentee voting, and voting on Election Day. A sample ballot is also available at EscambiaVotes.com.

Voters have three different ways to cast their ballot:

• By Mail: Voters may vote by mail using an absentee ballot, which can be requested through the online form at EscambiaVotes.com, or by contacting the Supervisor of Elections by mail, phone (850-595-3900), e-mail (absentee@escambiavotes.com), or fax (850-595-3914). Requests must include the voter’s date of birth and the address, and must be received no later than Wednesday, October 29. Voted ballots must be received in the Elections Office no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day and may not be returned to a polling location.
