Collier County Supervisor of Elections Begins First Mailing of Vote-by-Mail Ballots for the 2016 Primary Election

The Collier County Supervisor of Elections office will send its first mailing of requested Vote-by-Mail ballots to domestic voters on Tuesday, July 26, for the upcoming Primary Election on August 30.

Voters may submit requests online at www.CollierVotes.com<www.CollierVotes.com&gt; under the “Vote-by-Mail” tab.  Requests can also be made by calling the Supervisor of Elections office at (239)252-VOTE. By law, ballots cannot be forwarded.

The deadline for voters to request a ballot to be delivered by mail for this election is 5:00 p.m. on August 24. Voted ballots must be physically returned (not just postmarked) to the Supervisor of Elections by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, August 30. The United States Postal Service recommends that voters mail their voted ballots one week before the due date to account for any unforeseen events such as weather issues and to allow for timely receipt and processing by the elections office.

The voter’s signature is required on the outside of the ballot return envelope. The signature on the returned ballot envelope will be compared to the signature on file with the Supervisor of Elections office. Voters can update their signature by visiting www.CollierVotes.com<www.CollierVotes.com&gt; where they can download a voter registration application.

Voters who receive a ballot in the mail and decide to vote in person should bring their marked or unmarked ballot to their polling location so it can be cancelled.

For additional requirements to Vote-by-Mail, please call (239)252-VOTE.
