Over 116,500 Vote-By-Mail Ballot Requests Fulfilled for the General Election
Pasco County FL - Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections, announces that on Thursday, September 29, 2022, over 116,500 vote-by-mail ballots for the November 8, 2022 General Election will be mailed to voters with requests already on file. Ballots to uniformed and overseas citizens will be mailed September 23, 2022.
Voted mail ballots must be returned to the elections’ office by 7:00 p.m. Election Day, November 8, 2022. Please allow sufficient time for first-class delivery by the US Postal Service, or hand deliver ballots to any of the three Pasco County Supervisor of Elections’ Offices. Voted mail ballots are also accepted at early voting sites, however voted mail ballots may not be turned in at the polls on Election Day. Early voting sites and office locations are available online at PascoVotes.gov.
For eligible voters who did not previously request a ballot, they are still available by calling the elections’ office, by submitting the request in writing, or by using the online request form on PascoVotes.gov. Requests must include the voter’s Florida Driver License number, Florida ID Card number, or the last four digits of voter’s SSN, date of birth, and Pasco County residence address. Written requests must also include the voter’s signature.
Vote-by-mail ballots cannot be forwarded but can be mailed to a temporary mailing address if outside of Pasco County. Voters are encouraged to confirm their mailing address when ordering a vote-by-mail ballot. The deadline to request a ballot to be mailed is 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2022.
Written or telephonic requests for vote-by-mail ballots must come from the voter, an immediate family member, or legal guardian on behalf of a voter. Voters may pick up ballots for themselves at any of the three elections’ offices beginning, September 26, 2022, but not for someone else until nine days before the election, or Sunday, October 30, 2022.
Those picking 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 the ballot will be released to them.
