Absentee ballots are being prepared to ensure mailing no later than Sept. 21 in accordance with Florida law that requires all ballots be sent 45 days prior to an election.
“The first one we have to mail are overseas military and civilians,” said Supervisor of Elections Ann Bodenstein. “By law we have to have them out 45 days prior to the election.”
After the absentee ballots are mailed to overseas military personnel, other absentee ballots will be sent to military personnel or Santa Rosa County residents living in other states and to local resident who have requested an absentee ballot.
