Hillsborough County, FL – Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer is reminding Hillsborough County voters that they still have a lot of options for casting their General Election ballot.
- Hillsborough County has one more day of Early Voting – today – from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. in 26 locations. Voters can vote in any Early Voting location. Locations can be found at VoteHillsborough.org/EarlyVoting.
- Vote By Mail ballots must be received by the office no later than 7 p.m. Tuesday, November 3. They can be dropped off today between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at any of Hillsborough County’s elections offices or Early Voting locations. They can also be dropped off at any of the four elections offices on Monday or Tuesday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (Vote By Mail ballots cannot be turned in at Election Day polling places.) In addition to those options, the Robert L. Gilder Elections Service Center (2514 N. Falkenburg Rd.) has a 24-hour monitored, secure drop box outside the main door that will be open until 7 p.m. Election Day.
- Voters who don’t have a Vote By Mail ballot can pick up an “over the counter” Vote By Mail ballot or designate someone else to pick up a ballot for them at any of the four elections offices.
- Election Day – the last day to vote – is Tuesday, November 3. Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Election Day, voters must vote in the polling place assigned to their precinct or their vote will not count. Voters are encouraged to check their polling location before heading out to vote by using the Precinct Finder at VoteHillsborough.org or calling 744-5900.
In-person voting is expected to take longer than usual because of necessary health and safety precautions, which include limiting the number of people inside the polling place and continuous cleaning of equipment and surfaces. All Hillsborough County poll workers will wear masks and pass a temperature check before starting work.
Other planned health and safety measures for in-person voting include providing voters with single-use stylus pens and secrecy cover sheets, and minimizing touch points for voters and poll workers.
