Deadline to Request Vote-by-Mail Ballots

Pasco County FL - The Pasco County Supervisor of Elections Brian E. Corley
announced the last day for the elections' office to mail vote-by-mail
ballots is Wednesday, August 24, 2016.  Ballot requests received in the
supervisor's office by 5:00 p.m. that day will be honored. 

Ballots will still be available for pick-up over the counter at the three
supervisor's offices until 5:00 p.m. Monday, August 29th.  Voters wishing to
pick up ballots on behalf of someone will need a written request from the
voter designating them as the person authorized to carry out the ballot.
The designee will be asked to provide a photo ID and to complete an
affidavit before releasing the ballot to them.  

Florida Statutes does not allow for vote-by-mail ballots to be picked up in
the supervisor's office on the day of the election unless an emergency
precludes the voter from going to their assigned polling place. An affidavit
affirming the facts of the emergency will be required. The only exception is
voters residing in an assisted living facility. 

All voted ballots must be physically in the elections' office by 7:00 p.m.
Election Day, August 30, 2016, including ballots that were mailed.  Voted
ballots may also be hand delivered to any of the three Supervisor of
Elections' Offices in Pasco County by the 7:00 p.m. deadline, but may not be
turned in at the polls on Election Day. Voters can check the status of their
vote-by-mail ballot at
