Supervisor of Elections Tim Bobanic Provides Election Related Information for the 2022 General Election
Melbourne, FL – October 3, 2022 – The 2022 General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 8th. The deadline to register to vote in the General Election, also known as book closing, is October 11th. Voters can visit any of the four administrative offices or go to VoteBrevard.gov to update their records or register to vote.
“It is important for voters to be aware that the ballot for the General Election will be two pages. In order to streamline their voting experience during Early Voting or on Election Day, I’d encourage voters to review and mark their sample ballots and bring them to the polls with them,” said Tim Bobanic, Brevard County Supervisor of Elections. Sample ballots for the 2022 General Election are available on VoteBrevard.gov and will arrive in voters’ mailboxes the week of October 17th.
Early Voting for the November 8th General Election will be conducted from Monday, October 24th through Saturday, November 5th at 10 locations throughout Brevard. For locations and hours of operation, select the “Early Voting” tab at the top of the page on the VoteBrevard.gov website.
Voters, not already on the mail ballot request list, have until 5:00 p.m. on October 29th to request a mail ballot be sent to them prior to the November 8th Election. Military and Overseas mail ballots were sent out on September 23rd and the domestic mail ballots will be sent on October 6th.
Due to recent legislation, mail ballot requests will expire at the end of 2022. Starting January 1, 2023, voters will have to renew their request each calendar year if they wish to continue to receive ballots by mail. Requests can be made at VoteBrevard.gov or any of the four Election Administrative Offices.
Secure ballot intake stations (formerly known as drop boxes) are available in the lobby at all four administrative Supervisor of Elections Offices and at all 10 Early Voting sites. Due to legislative changes, secure ballot intake stations are no longer available 24 hours a day. Please check VoteBrevard.gov for hours of availability. Mail Ballots must be received in the Supervisor of Elections Offices by 7:00 p.m. on Election Night.
“Each election cycle we see an uptick in misinformation and disinformation campaigns and it is important for voters to contact my office to verify information they’ve seen or heard before sharing it. The Supervisor of Elections Office is the trusted source for election related information and voters can visit VoteBrevard.gov, call 321-290-VOTE (8683), or follow my verified Facebook and Twitter accounts to verify information and receive accurate updates,” said Supervisor Bobanic.
The Logic & Accuracy test of the election equipment, conducted per F.S. 101.5612, is scheduled for October 14th at the Election Support Center, located at 525 N. John Rodes Blvd. in Melbourne beginning at 9:00 a.m.
