Federal, state, local and municipal offices are up for election this year. These elections are called midterms because they happen in the middle of a presidential term. Every two years, every seat in the US House of Representatives is up for election and a third of the seats in the 100-member Senate. Locally, these elections are very important.
We challenge you to encourage everyone you know to vote.

How To Vote
There are three ways to vote in Florida. You can choose to vote in person, either during early voting or on Election Day. You can also choose to vote by mail.
Any eligible voter can choose to vote during early voting at any one of four sites in the county.
Dates: October 24 - November 5, 2022
Hours: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Locations: Early Voting Sites
Election Day Voting
You must vote in your assigned polling location on Election Day. Use our Precinct Finder to look up your precinct voting location.
If you live the P-Section or Seminole Woods (S-Section, U-Section, Grand Landings) and plan to vote on Election Day, please check your precinct before you vote! Precincts in these areas have changed.
Voters who live in Bunnell and normally vote at Bunnell City Hall will have a temporary change of polling location to the G.W. Carver Center, because the city hall location is unavailable this year.
Voters who live in Plantation Bay or Rima Ridge and normally vote at St. Mary's Catholic Church will have a permanent change of polling location to the Community Baptist Church, because the Catholic Church did not renew their agreement as a polling place.
Use our Precinct Finder to look up your precinct voting location.

Returning Your Mail Ballot
Mail ballots must be received in the Elections Office by 7:00 P.M. on Election Day in order to be counted.
If returning your ballot by mail, please allow at least TEN DAYS for delivery. Your voted mail ballot must be received by 7:00 P.M. on the day of the election. A postmark does not extend this deadline.
Secure Ballot Drop Boxes
A secure ballot drop box (a.k.a. secure ballot intake station) is being monitored and will be available during office hours at the entrance of the Elections Office beginning on Friday, July 15, 2022 through Election Day. This drop box is no longer available 24/7 or on weekends. Please bring your voted ballot during our office hours of 8:30 A.M. - 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday, excluding Federal holidays. The Elections Office drop box will have extended hours during the Early Voting period.
Secure ballot drop boxes will also be monitored and available at all early voting sites during the early voting period. Voters may use these drop boxes to deposit their mail ballots at any time early voting sites are open for voting. To learn more about our early voting sites and drop boxes, please visit our early voting page.
- DO NOT bring your voted mail ballot to the polling place on Election Day, it must be returned directly to the Elections Office on Election Day.
Voting In Person With A Mail Ballot
If you have requested and received a mail ballot but decide to vote in person, bring your ballot with you to the polls. The mail ballot will be canceled and you will be issued a new ballot at the polling location. You cannot use a mail ballot as a sample ballot in the voting booth. Instead, bring a sample ballot with you to use as a reference.
