Mail-in ballots are hitting Leon County mailboxes this week
Vote-by-mail ballots should be hitting Leon County mailboxes this week. Supervisor of Elections Mark Early announced his office is sending out more than 63,000 ballots.
In a press release Early’s office said Leon County residents who have already requested mail-in ballots should expect to receive them this week. Anyone who has not yet requested a mail ballot still has time to do so. Requests will be accepted up until October 29.
For votes to count, ballots must be returned to the elections office by 7 p.m. on Election Day, which falls on November 8. The post office recommends dropping ballots in the mail at least a week in advance, or ballots can be dropped off in person at any early voting site or the county elections office.
The last day to register to vote in the upcoming election is October 11. Information about how to get signed up is available on the Leon County Supervisor of Elections website.
