Another option for voters is to cast an absentee ballot, which can be requested through the online form at EscambiaVotes.com, or by e-mail (absentee@escambiavotes.com), phone (850-595-3900), mail, or fax (850-595-3914). Requests must include the voter’s date of birth and address, and must be received no later than Wednesday, August 20. 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. Absentee voters may track the status of their ballot at EscambiaVotes.com.

The third option for voters is to cast a ballot at their precinct on Election Day, August 26. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. An AutoMARK ballot marking device is also available at each polling place and early voting site to assist persons with disabilities.

All eligible voters in Escambia County have been mailed a sample ballot. In addition, voters can verify their registration status, view their sample ballot and find their polling place by visiting EscambiaVotes.com.

Voters are reminded to bring their photo and signature ID with them to the polls, and are encouraged to visit EscambiaVotes.com for complete voting information or contact the Elections Office by phone or e-mail with any questions.
