Tampa Bay, Florida – 2020 General Election: Tampa Bay Area
THREE WAYS TO VOTE
1. Vote By Mail
Mail ballots must be received by your Supervisor of Elections no later than 7 p.m. November 3.
What to Know about Vote By Mail
— Don’t forget to sign your Vote By Mail envelope before returning it.
— Make sure you have a current signature on file with your Supervisor of Elections Office. You can update your signature by completing a printed or online voter registration application. (An online application will add your most recent Florida Driver License or Florida State ID signature to your voter record.)
— Be consistent when signing your mail ballot return envelope. Signatures are compared to those on file with the elections office.
— You may mail your ballot back or drop it off at your local elections offices or Early Voting sites (during Early Voting). Check with your local elections office for more information on drop-off locations.
— If you mail the ballot back, make sure to allow plenty of time for it to be received. We recommend that you allow at least a week for your mailed ballot to reach your elections office. If your ballot isn’t in your county’s elections office by 7 p.m. Election Day, it will not be counted.
2. Early Voting
During Early Voting, you may vote at any Early Vote site in your county.
Dates, times and locations vary by county (see list below). Important: you must vote in the county in which you live.
