Picking up a Vote-by-Mail Ballot

If time constraints prohibit a timely delivery of a Vote-by-Mail ballot, a voter may pick up a ballot in the Main Office

A voter may choose, with an "Affidavit to Pick-up a Vote-by-Mail Ballot for a Voter" or a written notice, someone else to pick-up their ballot no sooner than 9 days prior to an election, and no later than 5:00 pm on the day before the election. (Florida Statute 101.62(4)(c)4.)

A "written notice" must include the name of the person picking up the ballot and their relation to the voter, along with  
the voter's:

  • Name
  • Signature
  • Date of birth
  • Address

A person may only pick up two Vote-by-Mail ballots per election that are not for themselves OR their immediate family. 

On Election Day, pick-up ballots may only be obtained in the event of an emergency. Regardless of who is picking up the ballot, an Emergency Affidavit must be completed.
