Mail ballots for the 2020 Primary Election have been sent out
Brevard County Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott announced that 131,149 domestic mail ballots were sent to voters for the August 18 Primary Election.
This is in addition to the 3,088 mail ballots sent last month to overseas military and overseas civilian voters.
“We have seen a 39.21 percent increase in the number of mail ballot requests since the 2018 Primary and a 54.35 percent increase since the 2016 Primary Election,” Scott said.
“ With so many new voters voting by mail, it is important to be aware of all the different options available and deadlines for voters to return their mail ballot.”
Mail ballot voters have the option to return their ballot through the United States Postal Service to any of the four Election Administrative Offices or to any of Brevard’s 10 Early Voting locations during the early voting time period.
Additionally, new this year, secure drop boxes will be located at all four administrative offices for voters who wish to return their voted mail ballot after hours.
Voters can verify they are on the Mail Ballot Request List by clicking on the “My Registration/Mail Ballot Status” tab at the top of the VoteBrevard.gov homepage. Voters who vote by mail can also track their mail ballot through the entire process: the day they requested it; the day it was mailed to them; and the day their voted mail ballot is received back in the Election Office through the website or by calling the Mail Ballot Department directly at 321-633-2127.
The last day for a voter to request a mail ballot be sent to them for the Aug. 18 Primary Election is 5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8. Mail ballots must be received in the Supervisor of Elections Office by 7 p.m. election night.
Sample ballots for the 2020 Primary Election will be mailed to all registered voters the week of Aug. 3 but are available now on VoteBrevard.gov.
