Are you one of the many Winter Park voters who is accustomed to voting by absentee ballot, who hasn’t received a ballot this year, and are wondering where it is?
No Permanent Absentee Status
Laws governing the way we vote have changed. The State of Florida no longer has permanent absentee status. If you haven’t received your absentee ballot for the 2015 election, Lucy Melendez of the Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office says your status probably has expired and you will need to renew your request.
Anyone registered to vote in Orange County may request an absentee ballot.
To renew your request online, go to http://www.ocfelections.com/votebyabsentee.aspx.
To request a ballot by phone, call 407-836-2070.
If you have access to a computer, you may also download the request form in .pdf format and mail it to the address given on the website. Request forms are available in English and Spanish.
You will need to include your name, date of birth, residential address, mailing address if it’s different from your residence, and the elections for which you wish to receive a ballot.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot is Wed., March 4, 5:00 p.m.
