Updating Your Signature
Has your signature changed over the years? Now is the time to update the signature on your voter record with the Lee County Supervisor of Elections. It is very important that your voter record contains your current signature. Having your signature up-to-date may seem like a minor thing, but it can be a determining factor in deciding whether or not your vote will be counted when you choose to vote by mail. Florida law requires that the signature on your Vote-by-Mail ballot envelope be compared to the signature on your voter record before the ballot may be counted.
To update your signature, you must complete a Florida Voter Registration Application. You may obtain an application by visiting the Voter Resources section of this website or at any of our offices, your local library or call our office and request an application be mailed to you. Return the completed application by mail or hand deliver to any of our offices.
