ALACHUA COUNTY ‒ Beginning on Monday, Aug. 8, Alachua County voters will be able to return their completed vote-by-mail ballot to a Secure Ballot Intake Station located at the Supervisor of Elections Office from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

From Monday, Aug. 8 until Friday, Aug. 12, voters can only return their vote-by-mail ballot to the Supervisor of Elections Office. However, from Aug. 13 to Aug. 20, voters will be able to return their ballot to a Secure Ballot Intake Station located at any of Alachua County's seven early voting location between the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

After early voting ends on Aug. 20, voters can still return their vote-by-mail ballot to the Secure Ballot Intake Station located at the Supervisor of Elections Office on Sunday, Aug. 21 and Monday, Aug. 22 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Election Day (Aug. 23), the Secure Ballot Intake Station will only be available at the Supervisor of Elections Office from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the 2022 Primary Election has not passed. Voters can request a vote-by-mail ballot for the Primary Election until 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13. Vote-by-mail ballots can be requested online, in person, by phone, fax, mail or email. Until the deadline, vote-by-mail ballot requests will be processed as they are received.

The Supervisor of Elections Office must receive domestic vote-by-mail ballots by 7 p.m. on Election Day (Tuesday, Aug. 23). Voters who vote by mail are encouraged to mail their completed ballot well in advance of Election Day to give the ballot ample time to arrive at the Supervisor of Elections Office before the deadline. Voters should also verify that their voter information and signature are up to date before they return their ballot if they have moved or their signature has changed.

Any voter who does not sign their vote-by-mail ballot or whose signature on the vote-by-mail ballot certificate does not match the signature in their voter record will be contacted by the Supervisor of Elections Office and provided the opportunity to correct their ballot. Per Florida Statutes, voters have until 5 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25 to complete an affidavit to correct a vote-by-mail ballot that does not have a signature or has a signature that does not match the voter's signature on file.

For more information, contact the Supervisor of Elections Office at 352-374-5252.
