A Note from Your Supervisor of Elections:
Hurricane Michael hit Jackson County very hard. Thousands of homes and businesses have been damaged or destroyed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Jackson County, and our affected neighbors as we go through these difficult times together.
We had many polling places damaged, and many remain without power. These polling places will be unusable on Election Day (November 6). Thankfully, our office and equipment are safe, secure, and undamaged. The election office is now open! We now have power, telephone, and internet service. We are able to receive emails at email@example.com. We are doing everything in our power to assure you that the election WILL go on, and every voter will have an opportunity to vote and have their voice heard.
As Supervisor of Elections, I am putting the following plan into place immediately:
- On Saturday, October 27, Early Voting will begin, and will be open every day from 8 AM - 5 PM through Monday, November 5
- On Election Day, November 6, Emergency Voting Sites will be open 7 AM until 7 PM.
- The following sites will be available for Early Voting and Election Day:
Supervisor of Elections Office
2851 Jefferson Street, Marianna, FL 32448
Sneads City Hall
2028 Third Avenue, Sneads, FL 32460
*Graceville Civic Center
5224 Brown Street, Graceville, FL 32440
*Please note: This is a change from the Graceville City Hall
YOUR NORMAL POLLING LOCATION WILL NOT BE OPEN ON ELECTION DAY!!
Any voter residing in Jackson County may vote at any of these locations.
Remember, according to Florida law, a current and valid picture/signature ID must be presented when voting in person. Click here for a list of acceptable forms of ID. If you do not have one of these forms of ID, you may vote a provisional ballot.
Beginning immediately, any Jackson County voter may come by the Supervisor of Elections office and pick up a Vote by Mail ballot for him- or herself or an immediate family member. You also have the option of voting a Vote by Mail ballot in the office. A Vote by Mail ballot request may also be made via our website by clicking here, or by calling our office at (850) 482-9652.
Pursuant to Executive Order 18-283 signed by Governor Scott, the restriction on mailing a Vote by Mail ballot to an address other than the address on file has been waived. If you are displaced due to the storm, you may give us the address where you are staying, and we will mail you a ballot to that address.
Please note that Vote by Mail ballots will be accepted at each of the three Early Voting sites between October 27 through November 5. On Election Day, November 6, all Vote by Mail ballots must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office no later than 7 PM. If you plan to return your ballot by mail, please do so no later than October 30 to ensure adequate delivery time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office via telephone at (850) 482-9652 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rest assured that we are doing everything in our power to conduct this General Election and provide a safe, secure, and convenient way for each voter to cast his or her ballot.
My staff and I are here working for you. Thank you for your patience.
God Bless You All,
Sylvia D. Stephens
