Request Your Vote-by-Mail Ballots Today
Pasco County FL - Given that "social distancing" mandates and precautions to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus may continue through the remainder of the 2020 election cycle, Brian Corley, Supervisor of Elections for Pasco County, is encouraging voters to consider the vote-by-mail option.
Florida voters have had the option for no-excuse voting by mail and utilization has increased exponentially since its inception. Requesting a ballot is as simple as going online to PascoVotes.gov, by calling 1-800-851-8754, or by mailing a handwritten request to Brian E. Corley, PO Box 300, Dade City, FL, 33526-0300. Handwritten requests must include your date of birth and signature.
"Over the last several election cycles, we have experienced an increase in the numbers of Pasco voters who use the vote-by-mail option," said Supervisor Corley. "It's safe, fast and can be done at your convenience in the comfort of your home."
If you choose to vote by mail, you can track the status of your mail ballot at PascoVotes.gov with the option to receive e-mail or text updates. If you have never voted by mail and you're concerned that your signature may not match what has been on file for years at the elections' office, you can apply for a signature update prior to voting. Applications are available online at PascoVotes.gov or by calling 1-800-851-8754.
Requests for vote-by-mail are accepted daily and can be made for up to two election cycles. Ballots are mailed approximately 40 days prior to any election, and per Florida Law, are due back in the Supervisor of Elections' Office by 7:00 p.m. Election Day.
