Polls will be open from 7:00am-7:00pm on Election Day, May 16. You must vote in your assigned precinct polling place on election day. Click here or call the Supervisor of Elections office at (904) 255-8683 to find your election day polling place.

Vote-by-Mail ballots are already hitting people’s mailboxes! The deadline to request your ballot be mailed to you is May 6 (after this you can pick up a vote-by-mail ballot at the Supervisor of Elections office if you need to). You can request a vote-by-mail ballot here. Remember: Your vote-by-mail ballot must be RECIEVED by the Supervisor of Elections by 7:00pm on Election Day May 16 if you want it to count. If you are mailing your ballot back, give it at least 10 days to get there in time. If you are planning to drop your ballot off, you can do so at a Secure Ballot Intake Station located inside each Early Voting location. If you are planning to drop off your mail ballot on Election Day May 16, you will have to bring it to the Supervisor of Elections office at 105 East Monroe Street in Jacksonville.
