Vote-by-Mail Ballot Drop Boxes

Before you return your voted vote-by-mail ballot, be certain to seal it in the return envelope provided and sign the voter's certificate on the back of the envelope. While most voters choose to return their voted ballot by mail, voters may also choose to return their voted ballot sealed in the signed return envelope to our office in person. Vote-by-mail ballots may not be dropped off at the voter’s polling place on Election Day. All vote-by-mail ballots must be received in our office at 515 N. Main Street, Gainesville, FL 32601 by 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Voters may also return their vote-by-mail ballots to any early voting site during early voting hours or to the white, secure drop box, located outside the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office, 515 N. Main Street, Gainesville, FL 32601.

Secured drop boxes will be provided and monitored by election personnel at all early voting sites during posted hours of operation and at the secure drop box located outside the supervisor of elections main office. The location of vote-by-mail drop boxes and availability will be published on this website at least 30 days prior to each election.
