Pasco County, Florida -- Pasco County Supervisor of Elections announced Monday the deadline for voters to request a vote-by-mail ballot for the Special General Election is Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Beginning Thursday, Oct. 10, voters who wish to vote a paper ballot before Election Day may pick up the ballot at any of the three Supervisor of Elections' Offices.
Per Florida Statutes, those picking up ballots on behalf of someone will need a written request from the voter, designating them as the person authorized to carry out the ballot. The designee will be asked to provide a photo ID, and to complete an affidavit before the elections' office releases the ballot to them. Designees are limited to picking up two ballots in addition to their own, unless the additional ballots are for immediate family members.
These ballots will be available five days prior to the election or beginning on Thursday, Oct. 10, 2013.
