Deadlines for vote-by-mail voters for Florida’s general election are approaching. 

The deadline for Supervisors of Elections to mail ballots for absent stateside and overseas uniformed service members and overseas civilians is Saturday. For all other voters who already made similar requests, ballots will be mailed from October 2 to October 9. The Supervisor of Elections can still receive requests for mailed ballots before 5 p.m. on October 31. November 2 is the last day ballots will be sent out.

Secretary of State Ken Detzner says voters also have the option of early voting and voting on Election Day at the polls. The General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 6.
