Voter Preparation Vital to Successful Elections

Pasco County, FL - Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections Pasco County, wants to ensure voters are prepared for the upcoming primary this Tuesday, August 26, 2014. The polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. at 111 precincts throughout Pasco County.  A complete list of polling locations is available online at pascovotes.com.  Voters are statutorily required to vote in the precinct in which they reside and to provide a photo and signature ID when voting.  

"Reminding everyone what's required on Election Day ensures a smoother voting experience," said Supervisor Corley.  "Our goal is to provide the best service possible and a flawless, transparent election with timely and accurate results to the citizens of Pasco County".   

Per law, Florida is a closed primary state and as such, voters will be issued party-specific ballots.  All voters regardless of party will vote in the Universal Primary contest for County Commissioner District 4 and the contest for School Board Member District 5, as well as judicial contests.  Studying the candidates in advance & utilizing your sample ballot will help expedite voting at the polls.      

If you have not voted since the last gubernatorial election, you should check your voter registration status on-line, pascovotes.com or call 1-800-851-8754. Do not wait until Election Day to find out if you are registered and if your registration is in good standing. Voter registration address changes can be done by telephone or on-line, but failure to update your address prior to Election Day could result in delays at the polls.

Florida Statutes (Section 101.031(2)) delivers instructions to voters and establishes a Voter's Bill of Rights and Voter Responsibilities.  Pursuant to statute, copies of these are posted in all polling locations on Election Day.  They can be viewed beforehand online at www.pascovotes.com by selecting the voter registration tab on the homepage and the voter's guide option from the flyout menu.
