Who can request a Mail Ballot?
Any voter may request a Mail Ballot for him or herself in person or in writing.

Can I request a Mail Ballot for someone else?
Mail Ballot requests may not be made for anyone other than members of one's immediate family, which is defined as one's legal guardian, spouse, one's child, parent, grandparent, sibling, or one's spouse's child, parent, grandparent, or sibling.

What information is required to request a Mail Ballot?
If a person makes a Mail Ballot request for someone else in writing, or for anyone, including himself or herself, by telephone, the following information must be given for the voter whose ballot is being requested:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth

 In addition, the person making the request must give the following information about himself or herself:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Driver's license number (if available)
  • Relationship to person whose ballot is being requested
  • Signature (if written request)

We also request an optional phone number or email address so that the voter can be reached in case there is a problem processing his or her ballot request.

Where will the Elections Office send my Mail Ballot?
All Mail Ballots must be sent to the mailing address on file with the elections office, unless the voter is out of the county and will not return before the election, or if they are in the military, are overseas, are in a hospital or nursing home, are unable to occupy their home due to an emergency or natural disaster, or in a few other limited situations.

What if I change my mailing address or move after I request a Mail Ballot?
It is very important that voters notify the Elections Office of any address changes after a Mail Ballot request has been made, because Mail Ballots, with the exception of those ballots sent overseas or to members of the military, are not forwardable by the U.S. Postal Service. Any mail that is sent to a voter by the Elections Office and is returned as undeliverable by the U.S. Postal Service will cause any pending Mail Ballot requests for that voter to be cancelled. 

Who can mark my Mail Ballot?
All voters are required to mark their own Mail Ballots, unless they have a disability that prevents them from doing so.

If I registered to vote by mail am I required to submit a copy of my photo ID with my voted Mail Ballot?
Yes- If a voter has registered by mail and has no Florida driver's license, Florida identification card or social security number, and has not submitted a copy of their photo identification, they must show identification the first time they vote after registering. Voters in this situation who request a mail ballot will be mailed a special certificate and a special envelope in which to remit a copy of their identification along with their ballot. Acceptable forms of identification and categories of voters exempt from the requirement are listed on the Identification Requirements for Mail Registrants page.

If a voter is required to provide ID and they return their Mail Ballot without a copy of their ID or without affirming that they are exempt from the requirement, their ballot will be rejected.

Can I pick up my Mail Ballot from the Elections Office?
Yes- Instead of having a ballot mailed to them, voters may take home a ballot from any Supervisor of Elections Office location. Take home ballots are generally available three weeks before the date of the election.

Five days prior to Election Day, or on Election Day itself, if a voter is unable to pick up a ballot, he or she may designate another person to pick it up for him or her. This designation must be in writing and must be signed. (You may use the Appointment of Designee form for this purpose.) The designee must show photo identification before they may pick up the ballot. No one may pick up more than two ballots for other voters, except for members of his or her immediate family as defined above.

How can I return my Mail Ballot to the Elections Office?
A voter can mail or return his or her ballot in person at any Elections office location listed below. If a voter cannot mail or personally return their ballot to the Elections Office, he or she may have someone else return it.

Regardless of how they are returned, all ballots must be received at one of the Supervisor of Elections office locations below by 7 PM on the day of the election to be eligible to be counted. 

Do I need to sign the return envelope included with my Mail Ballot?
Yes- You are required to sign the certificate on your certificate envelope and your Mail Ballot must be returned in this envelope once it is signed. The signature on your certificate envelope must match the signature on your voter registration record, or the ballot will not be counted. If your signature has changed since you registered to vote, you can update it by submitting a new registration form, available online or at any registration location

In addition, please be sure to fold the signature flap on your return ballot envelope as it was mailed to you and NOT along the perforation. Folding the flap along the perforation will change the envelope dimensions and increase the postage return rate due to an oversized envelope.

What if I request a Mail Ballot and later decide I would like to vote at an Early Voting site or my polling location on Election Day?
If a Mail Ballot is requested and received, but then the voter decides to vote at an Early Voting site or his or her polling place instead, the voter should take his or her Mail Ballot to the polling location and give it to an election official who will then allow him or her to vote a regular ballot. If the voter does not bring his or her unvoted Mail Ballot and the election officials cannot verify that the voter's ballot has not been received by the Elections Office, the voter will be required to vote a provisional ballot.

Can I track the status of my Mail Ballot?
Yes- Voters can track the status of their Mail Ballot through the entire election process, including the day it is received back in the Elections office. Check your Mail Ballot Status

What if I am a military or overseas civilian voter wishing to Vote by Mail?
Overseas voters who are not able to vote during the normal voting period due to military or other contingencies may request, not earlier than 180 days and not later than 90 days before a general election, a state write-in ballot. This ballot will list the offices that are scheduled to appear on the general election ballot. The voter may designate a candidate or party for whom he or she chooses to vote. Overseas voters may also request electronic transmission of ballots; see the Mail Ballots for Military and Overseas Voters page for additional information.

Are Mail Ballots counted in every Election?
Yes- Every Mail Ballot that is received from a voter that contains a properly completed certificate is counted in every election. Rumors which state that Mail Ballots are only counted in close elections or are not counted at all are absolutely false.

What happens if I forget to sign my Mail Ballot certificate envelope?
You are encouraged to track the status of your Mail Ballot through the election process online at http://www.VoteBrevard.com/voterlookup. The Check My Ballot Status feature on the Elections’ website will inform you once your ballot is received by the Elections Office and if you returned your Mail Ballot without signing the certificate envelope.

If you returned your Mail Ballot to the Elections Office without signing your certificate envelope, you have the option to submit an Omitted Signature Affidavit for Absentee Ballot (DS-DE 139, effective 1/2014) to the Elections Office. Please review the instructions on the DS-DE 139 form carefully, as failure to follow the instructions provided on the form may prevent your ballot from being counted. If your completed DS-DE 139 is received in the Elections Office by 5 pm the day before the election, your Mail Ballot will be counted.
