Voters will Receive Sample Ballots this Week
Politics

Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland announces that today for the 529,866 voters in Duval county more than 299,853 sample ballots will be mailed, one for each residential household, for Jacksonville’s First Consolidated Government Election on March 22nd.

"Sending a sample ballot to each household instead of each individual is an effort by our office to save taxpayers over $70,000 dollars. This is made possible because the upcoming elections are unitary elections, which means all voters in a household will be voting the same ballot style. We are asking for each household to please share their sample ballot with each voter in their household", stated Supervisor Holland.

Sample ballots are provided to inform voters of the offices up for election and the candidates running for office on the ballot for the March 22nd Election.

Sample ballots notify voters of:

  • their polling location and precinct number
  • explains their rights and responsibilities
  • list the nine acceptable forms of identification to take to the polls

Included in the sample ballots are profile pages showing statements from each local candidate appearing on the ballot for voters to review prior to voting. Sample ballots also remind voters of the three ways they may vote: vote by absentee ballot, vote early or vote on Election Day.

Voters who do not receive a sample ballot may visit our website: www.duvalelections.com, to download and view their sample ballot. Voters who are visually impaired may call (904) 630-6000 and listen to a recording as the entire ballot is read aloud. This recording will identify the offices up for election and the candidates running for office.

For more information please contact Duval County Supervisor of Elections office at (904) 630-1414 or on our website: www.duvalelections.com
