Last day to request delivery of a Vote By Mail Ballot | News
Tampa, Florida - The deadline for Hillsborough County residents to request delivery of a Vote By Mail Ballot for the August 14 Primary Election is 5 p.m. today.
After 5 p.m., voters must appear in person at any of the Supervisor of Elections four offices to request a Vote By Mail ballot, the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Office said in a release.
Vote By Mail, formerly known as absentee voting, is available to all registered voters, and is one of three ways to cast a ballot in the upcoming election. "Vote By Mail gives registered voters an alternative to physically voting at the polls. It allows the voters to study the issues or candidates, and mark their ballot at a time and location of their own choosing," said Earl Lennard, Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections.
The deadline for voters to return their ballot is 7 p.m. on August 14, 2012.
