Over 64,000 Vote-By-Mail Ballot Requests To Be Fulfilled

Pasco County FL - Supervisor of Elections Brian E. Corley announced that vote-by-mail ballots are available upon request by calling the elections' office, 800-851-8754, by submitting the request in writing or by using the on-line request form on https://www.pascovotes.com.  Tuesday, October 2, 2018, the office will mail over 64,000 ballots to voters with requests already on file.

"The General Election ballot is lengthy with constitutional amendments, revisions and county referendums," said Supervisor Corley. "Long ballots have the potential of creating long waiting lines at early voting sites and election day precincts.  Voting by mail affords voters the leisure of voting in the privacy of their home when it's convenient for them."

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 the 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 for the Primary Election is Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

Voted ballots must be returned to the elections' office by 7:00 p.m. election day, November 6, 2018.  Due to postal service regulations, it will require $.50 postage to return the ballot by mail, and voters should allow up to five business days. Voted ballots may also be hand delivered to any of the three Supervisor of Elections' Offices in Pasco County, and will also be accepted at early voting sites during the early voting period.  Voted ballots may not be turned in at the polls on election day. Voters can check the status of their vote-by-mail ballot at https://www.pascovotes.com.
