How to Vote-By-Mail

published on: October 16, 2020

Election Day may be on Nov. 3, but voting has already started. In fact, many Florida voters have already cast their ballots by mail. As of October 16, over 2 million mail-in ballots have been counted!

Florida’s environment is on your ballot. Whether it’s national, state, or local candidates, you have the opportunity to elect environmental champions up and down the ballot. There are also some very high-stake amendments and local ballot measures to consider as well.

1. Request your ballot

Voting by mail is safe, convenient, and secure. If you have a new address or plan on being away from home in the coming weeks, make sure your ballot is sent to the right place.

Deadline to request your ballot: 10/24

2. Receive your ballot

You can expect your ballot to arrive in your mail box within five days of request. Check in with your county Supervisor of Elections to find out if your ballot has been sent to your home. Look up your SOE:

3. Research all of the candidates and issues on your ballot

When you vote by mail, you get the extra benefit of being able to research every candidate and issue before you make your final choices. While you wait for your ballot to arrive, you can visit your local Supervisor of Elections website to see a sample ballot.

4. Return your ballot by mail or drop box

Don’t wait to send your ballot back – return your ballot ASAP. Follow the directions mailed with your ballot and apply stamps as needed. Return your ballot by mail or at an Early Voting site. You can always drop off your ballot at your local Supervisor of Elections office. Once you’ve returned your ballot (whether by secure drop box or by mail), you can track your ballot and ensure it was counted.
