Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott Mails Out Domestic Mail Ballots
for the 2020 Primary Election
Viera, FL – July 16, 2020 – Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott announced 131,149 domestic mail ballots were sent to voters today for the August 18th Primary Election. This is in addition to the 3,088 mail ballots sent earlier this month to overseas military and overseas civilian voters.
“We have seen a 39.21% increase in the number of mail ballot requests since the 2018 Primary and a 54.35% increase since the 2016 Primary Election,” said Supervisor Scott. “ 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, and 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 home page. 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 August 18th Primary Election is 5:00 p.m., Saturday, August 8, 2020. Mail ballots must be received in the Supervisor of Elections Office by 7:00 p.m. election night.
Sample ballots for the 2020 Primary Election will be mailed to all registered voters the week of August 3rd but are available now on VoteBrevard.gov.
“My office continues to be your trusted source for Brevard County election information,” said Supervisor Scott. #BeElectionReady
