ALACHUA COUNTY WILL COVER YOUR DOMESTIC POSTAGE – NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT A STAMP!
You have until the Wednesday before the election (August 22, 2018) to request a vote-by-mail ballot, but the post office recommends allowing five days for returning the ballot through the mail, so don’t wait until the deadline.
How do I request a Vote-By-Mail ballot for myself?
Go to VoteAlachua.com/MBRS or call 352-374-5252.
How do I request a Vote-By-Mail ballot for another voter?
Only a designated member of a voter’s immediate family (or a legal guardian) can request a Vote-By-Mail ballot for that voter and they may do so only if directly instructed by the voter. Immediate family means the voter's spouse or the parent, child, grandparent or sibling of either the voter or of the voter's spouse.
Requests can be made via this website, in person, by mail, by telephone or by fax.
Requests must include:
• the voter’s name
• the voter’s current legal residence address (no post office boxes)
• the voter’s date of birth
• the voter's signature (mail and fax requests only)
• the requestor’s name
• the requestor’s address
• the requestor’s driver’s license number (if available)
• the requestor’s relationship to the voter
If the voter will not be at his or her residence address to receive the ballot, a mailing address for the ballot must be provided. Vote-By-Mail ballots cannot be forwarded by the US Postal Service.
Please refer to the Vote-by-Mail section for more detailed information
Special information for overseas voters
An overseas voter is:
- an absent uniformed services voter who, by reason of active duty or service, is absent from the United States on the date of the election,
- a person who resides outside the United States and is qualified to vote in the last place in which the person was domiciled before leaving the United States, or
- a person who resides outside the United States and, but for such residence, would be qualified to vote in the last place in which the person was domiciled before leaving the United States.
If and only if you qualify as an overseas voter, then your Vote-By-Mail ballot will be mailed not later than 45 days prior to Election Day, your ballot is eligible to be forwarded, and you may have your ballot sent to you via e-mail or fax. Only overseas voters may return their ballot via fax. Under current Florida law, no voter may return their ballot via e-mail.
Overseas voters only should request Vote-By-Mail ballots by using our Vote-By-Mail Ballot Request Form. You may also telephone our office at (352) 374-5252, fax your request to (352) 374-5264, make your request in person, or mail your request.
Overseas voters who wish to update their signature, change their party affiliation, or make any other change to their voter registration record, may use the Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) form.
