CRESTVIEW — As Crestview and Laurel Hill’s municipal elections quickly approach, Okaloosa County Supervisor of Elections Paul Lux says voters have three ways to vote — early, by mail or at the polls.
•Early voting is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 2-9 at the Supervisor of Elections Offices, 302 N. Wilson St., Crestview.
• Vote by mail. Request absentee ballots early by telephone, email, mail, in person or by visiting www.govote-okaloosa.com. Absentee ballots must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Third-party pick-up by a designated immediate family member is allowed four days before Election Day. Today is the last day to request a ballot to be mailed to you.
• Vote on election day, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 12. You must vote in the precinct in which you live. Check your status before you vote, Lux said. Visit the Supervisor of Elections website and use the Voter Lookup Tool to find your precinct, update your voter registration information, request an absentee ballot, check the status of your absentee ballot, view sample ballots and future election dates, and view a map and obtain directions to your polling place.
Florida Statutes require you to show photo and signature identification when you vote in person, whether early or at the polls.
