Vote By Mail

Requesting a Vote By Mail Ballot is Easy

We can make meaningful changes in this year's August 28 Primary and November 6 General Election, and Voting By Mail makes it easier.  You can skip the line and vote in the convenience of your home.  You can take your time with your voting decisions, including the 13 amendments that will be on the November 6 ballot.  

Ballots are mailed to you about 30 days before the election, but you can request a Vote By Mail ballot up to six days before the election.  You can also track your ballot to make sure it has been counted.

Contact the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections

Call the Supervisor of Elections at 941-741-3823 or request a Vote By Mail ballot on their website:

Other Things to Know about VBM

You can also request a Vote By Mail ballot in person

Stop in at the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections office: 600 301 Blvd. West, Bradenton, FL 34205. 

All registered voters are eligible

However, you must be able to receive mail at the address to give in your Vote By Mail ballot request.

Requests are not permanent

If you have used a Vote By Mail ballot in two election cycles, then it's probably time to renew.  If in doubt, contact the Supervisor of Elections office to confirm and renew, if necessary.

Vote by mail ballots are neither held nor forwarded by the US Postal Service

However, you may request a Vote By Mail ballot be sent to where you are visiting.  If that address is different than the one on your voter record, then the first request using that address must be in writing with your signature.

Completed Vote By Mail ballots are not accepted at the polls on election day

They must be received by the SOE office by mail or in person by 7:00 pm on election day.  If you wish to vote in person instead, you may surrender your Vote By Mail ballot (although this is not required) at the polls and receive a fresh ballot to complete and return while there.
