Pasco County FL - Supervisor of Elections Brian E. Corley announced that vote-by-mail ballots are now available upon request by calling the elections' office, by submitting the request in writing or by using the on-line request form on www.pascovotes.com. Tuesday, July 22, 2014, the office will mail over 40,000 ballots to voters with requests already on file.
"Voting by mail continues to increase with each election cycle", said Supervisor Corley. "Voters like the convenience of voting at their leisure in the privacy of their home."
Vote-by-mail ballots cannot be forwarded but can be mailed to a temporary mailing address if outside of Pasco County. Requests of this type must be in writing and include voter's signature. All other written requests must include the voter's date of birth, signature, and Pasco County residence address. Voters are encouraged to confirm their mailing address when ordering a vote-by-mail ballot. Requests are fulfilled immediately, with ballots being mailed daily. The deadline to request a ballot to be mailed is Wednesday, August 20, 2014.
Voted ballots must be returned to the elections' office by 7:00 p.m. election day, August 26, 2014. Due to postal service regulations, it will require 49 postage to return the ballot by mail. Voted ballots may also be hand delivered to any of the three Supervisor of Elections' Offices in Pasco County. Voted ballots may not be turned in at the polls on election day.
