First Hillsborough Ballots Sent Out for Primary Election
Voters have until Aug. 24 to request a mail-in ballot.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – The Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections sent out 3,651 primary ballots Friday (July 15) to overseas and absent military voters.
The office is preparing to send out more than 150,000 ballots to domestic voters July 26. Voters have until Aug. 24 to request that a ballot be mailed to them.
“Vote by mail is becoming an increasingly popular way to vote,” said Craig Latimer, supervisor of elections. “We pay the return postage, and we’re now including our very popular ‘I Voted’ stickers with our vote by mail ballots.”
The deadline to register to vote or change party affiliation for this election is Aug. 1. Florida has closed primaries, so voters will receive a Democratic ballot, a Republican ballot, a Libertarian ballot or a nonpartisan ballot, depending on which party they are registered with. All voters, whether they are affiliated with a party or not, will vote on nonpartisan issues and races (such as school board) during this primary election. Early voting in Hillsborough County is Aug. 15 – 28, and election day is Aug. 30.
For information, or to request a vote by mail ballot, go to VoteHillsborough.org or call (813) 744-5900. Vote by mail ballots must be in the elections office no later than Aug. 30. The U.S. Postal Service recommends that voters mail ballots back at least one week before the deadline. Voters can also drop their ballot off at any of the four Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections offices (during office hours) or at one of the 16 early voting sites (during early voting hours).
