Early Voting is a convenient voting option available to all registered voters to cast a ballot in person prior to Election Day at any open Early Voting location designated by the Supervisor of Elections.
Early Voting is only required for elections containing a state or federal office and begins approximately 10 days before a county-wide election and ends 3 days before the election. Dates, times and locations vary by county.
Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. Election Day to be counted and may be returned to a secure mail ballot drop box located at each early voting location during early voting hours, or in person to the Supervisor of Elections office located at 981 NE 16th Street, Ocala, FL 34470. (Note: Due to SB 90 Election Law changes, the 24/7 Drop Box located outside of the Supervisor of Elections office will no longer be available. However, voters may still utilize the drop box inside the election’s office during business hours, M-F 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)
