Press release from Alachua County Supervisor of Elections
ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. — The deadline to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the 2022 General Election is 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 29. This deadline is less than one week away. 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.
Any registered Alachua County voter can sign up to vote by mail.
The Supervisor of Elections Office must receive domestic vote-by-mail ballots by 7 p.m. on Election Day (Tuesday, November 8). Voters who vote by mail are encouraged to mail their completed ballot at least one week before 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.
Voters can deliver completed vote-by-mail ballots to the Supervisor of Elections Office, located in Gainesville at 515 N. Main St. during normal business hours — 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Voters can also use the secure ballot intake station located outside of the office’s main entrance. The secure ballot intake station will be available at the Supervisor of Elections Office from 9 a.m to 6 p.m. October 24 through November 7 and on Election Day (November 8) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Additionally, secure ballot intake stations will be available at all seven early voting locations from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the early voting period (October 24-November 5).
