TAMPA, Fla. – Voters living in the City of Tampa who have requested Vote By Mail ballots should start watching their mailboxes.
Today, the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections sent out 14,875 Vote By Mail ballots for the City of Tampa Municipal Election. Vote By Mail ballots are only mailed to registered voters who have requested one.
“It’s not too late to request a mail ballot,” said Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer, “but I encourage voters to make their request as soon as possible. All Vote By Mail requests expired after the 2022 General Election.”

Voters can call (813) 744-5900 or visit VoteHillsborough.gov to request a mail ballot. They will need to provide their Florida driver’s license, Florida ID, or the last four digits of their social security number when making the request.
Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer offers a few tips for voters who want to vote by mail:
- Don’t forget to sign the envelope before returning the ballot.
- Drop your voted ballot in the mail — no postage necessary, or drop it off in person at one of our seven Early Voting locations (during Early Voting hours) or one of our four offices.
- Track your ballot at VoteHillsborough.gov to see when your ballot was mailed out and when your voted ballot was received by the elections office.
