Supervisor of Elections Sends Vote-by-Mail Information to Voters

Pasco County FL – Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections, Pasco County, encourages Pasco voters to consider the vote-by-mail option for the November General Election.  In an effort to provide voters with options in advance of an expected heavy turnout, over 150,000 informational postcards will be mailed this week to registered Pasco County voters who don’t currently have a vote-by-mail request on file.

“I want to be proactive in making sure voters are aware that they have options, said Supervisor Corley.  “Voters who choose to vote by mail or early can actually alleviate the polling place congestion which happens during the high turnout in Presidential Elections.”  

Voting by mail requires no excuse and is available to any registered voter.  Ballots are conveniently delivered to your door and can be voted in the privacy of your home.  Voting by mail is a viable option for those who are unable to stand in long lines, have transportation issues, or may be short on time Election Day. Once you return your vote-by-mail ballot to the Supervisor of Elections’ Office, you can track the status of your ballot online at http://www.pascovotes.com/Vote-by-Mail/Check-Request-Status.aspx .  

Vote-by-mail ballots must be physically in the elections’ office by 7:00 p.m. Election Day, November 8, 2016.  Be sure to sign your ballot and allow sufficient time for Post Office delivery.  In order to be counted vote-by-mail ballots may not be turned in at the polls on Election Day.
