The most important election of our time is just about a month away.  If you can’t get out to vote, there is still time to receive a vote-by-mail ballot.

You have to act fast!  Any voter that wants to vote by mail must send their request to the election’s office now.  Your request has to be received by the election’s office by Saturday, October 24 by 5pm.  This is important  as it will allow enough time for you to receive the ballot and returned to the elections office in time to be counted.

You can submit a request for a mail-in ballot to or you can call them at 941 861-8618.  Also, if you have additional questions about how to Vote-By-Mail, visit the website or call 941 861-8619.
