WHAT/WHO IS ON THE BALLOT: News4Jax Voter’s Guide

Those who cast ballots in person, either at an early voting site or on Election Day, will see precautions to protect both the voters and the poll workers from coronavirus. Voters are encouraged to wear face coverings and, if they choose, bring their own black pen to use on the ballot rather than the pen provided.

Extra workers will regularly sanitize and clean all contact surfaces, including voting booths. Voting booths will also be spaced for social distancing, and you will be reminded to social distance, too.

Advance voting by mail

Voters who don’t wait to vote in person or choose could request a ballot by mail through Oct. 24. At this point, the U.S. Postal Service recommends not returning those ballots by mail since they must arrive at your county’s supervisors of elections office by Tuesday. Secure drop boxes are available at each county’s supervisor of elections office and, during voting hours, at all early voting sites. There will also be a drive-by dropbox for Duval County ballots available at TIAA Bank Field from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sunday and at your supervisor of elections office on Monday and Election Day.
