ALACHUA COUNTY, Fla. – Beginning on Monday, August 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, August 8, until Friday, August 12, voters can only return their vote-by-mail ballot to the Supervisor of Elections Office. However, from August 13 to August 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 locations between the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

After early voting ends on August 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, August 21, and Monday, August 22, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Election Day (August 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, August 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, August 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, August 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.
