Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Information

A Message from the Supervisor of Elections

Our physical office will be closed to the public beginning at 5 p.m. Friday, March 20, until further notice in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We find ourselves living through unprecedented times, and these times call for unprecedented measures. We must address the current public health crisis head-on. Though our office's physical space will be closed to the public, I remain committed to serving candidates, voters and other members of the public remotely — through our website, email and phone — and by appointment when necessary.

All of the functions of our office — including registering to vote, updating registration information or signing up for vote-by-mail ballots — can be performed online at VoteAlachua.com, by email at voter@alachuacounty.us, or by phone at 352-374-5252. Public records requests can be made to Alexis White at awhite@alachuacounty.us.

Candidates or prospective candidates can contact Tim Williams at twilliams@alachuacounty.us or 352-374-5257.

Regardless of the closure, the following public meetings required to complete the 2020 Presidential Preference Primary and City of Gainesville Regular Election will still be held:

  • Friday, March 27, at 4:30 p.m. — The Canvassing Board will meet to canvass overseas ballots and certify the official results. Ballots will be available for inspection at 4:00 p.m. The Board will then make audit selections for the post-election audit of the voting system. A review of the audit process will follow.
  • Monday, March 30, at 10 a.m. — The Canvassing Board will meet at the Supervisor of Elections Office to conduct the post-election manual equipment audit.
  • Tuesday, March 31, at 10 a.m. (if needed) — The Canvassing Board will meet at the Supervisor of Elections Office to conduct the post-election manual equipment audit.

Please be well and remain safe during this time. 

 

Respectfully,

Kim A. Barton

Supervisor of Elections

Alachua County
