Contact information on the Vote-by-Mail Certificate (return) Envelope
Your contact information, such as your e-mail address, home and mobile telephone number on the Voter's Certificate return envelope, is requested per Section 101.64, Florida Statutes. The Supervisor of Elections will use this information to contact you if there is an issue with your signature on the Voter's Certificate return envelope. Choosing not to provide the requested contact information will require us to notify you by mail. It could mean that you have less time to cure any signature deficiencies, which is authorized until 5:00 p.m. on the second (2nd) day after the election.
What if I forget to sign my Vote-by-Mail ballot or what if I'm not sure if my signature will match?
Per Florida Statute 101.68(4)(a), the Supervisor of Elections office will notify an elector who has returned a Vote-by-Mail ballot that does not include the elector’s signature or contains a signature that does not match the elector’s signature on record. The supervisor shall allow such an elector to complete and submit an affidavit in order to cure the Vote-by-Mail ballot.
If the signature on your Vote-by-Mail certificate envelope does not match the signature on your voter record, or you forgot to sign the Vote-by-Mail Certificate Envelope, you will be sent a Signature Cure Affidavit.
