As we mentioned yesterday, the time in which people are now allowed to request mail-in ballots in Florida has been shortened to two years. This means that anyone who has requested such in the past two years should at their soonest convenience request a new one.
The Guardian also previously covered this back in February although the changes are just now largely taking flight.
In this step-by-step guide, we’re going to go over how this can be done and done online for those who may not be able to go in person.
According to the state’s website, these things must apply for one to request a ballot.
As a voter requesting a vote-by-mail ballot you must provide your:
- date of birth
- signature (written requests only)
If an immediate family member or legal guardian is requesting a vote-by-mail ballot for you, that person must provide above information about the voter as well as the following:
*The marked ballot must be mailed or delivered in person, reaching the Supervisor of Elections’ office no later than 7:00 pm on the day. *
- Requester’s name
- Requester’s address
- Requester’s driver’s license number (if available)
- Requester’s relationship to voter
- Requester’s signature (written requests only)
