CRESTVIEW — On Thursday, Okaloosa County Supervisor of Elections Paul Lux stated in a press release there are three ways residents can vote in the November election: Vote Early, Vote by Mail, or Vote at the Polls on election day.

Early voting

Early voting is from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 27 through Nov. 3 at the Crestview Public  Library, 1445 Commerce Drive, Crestview; Supervisor of Elections Office, 302 N. Wilson St., Suite 102, Crestview; Niceville City Hall, 208 N. Partin Drive, Niceville; and the Shalimar Annex, 1250 N. Eglin Parkway, Shalimar. (Early voting is no longer offered at the University of Florida Research and Engineering Education Facility by Eglin Air Force Base.)

Vote by mail

Voters can request absentee ballots early by telephone, email, mail, in person or at www.govote-okaloosa.com. The ballots must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted. Third-party pick-up by a designated immediate family member is allowed four days before election day. The deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail is Oct. 31.

Vote on election day

Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on election day. You must vote in the precinct in which you live. Florida Statute 101.043 requires you to show photo and signature identification when you vote in person, whether early or at the polls.
