Indian River County is encouraging voters to Vote by Mail during this period of Covid-19. You can go online and request your absentee ballot by clicking the link below.
Only the voter or a designated member of his or her immediate family or legal guardian can request a vote-by-mail ballot for the voter.
Ballots are mailed between 40 and 33 days (45 days for military and overseas voters) prior to each election to those voters who have requested a vote-by-mail ballot. Vote-by-mail ballots cannot be forwarded so it is important that the elections office is provided with a correct mailing address.
A vote-by-mail ballot request must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) on the tenth (10th) day before the election.
Vote-by-Mail ballots must be returned to the Supervisor of Elections office by the voter, either in person or by mail. If the voter is unable to mail or personally deliver the ballot, the voter may designate a person to return the ballot. ***NEW*** For the convenience of voters, Mail Ballot Drop Boxes will be provided inside all three early voting sites during voting hours. Vote-by-Mail Ballots Boxes are sealed and secure. Ballots will be returned daily to the Elections Office.
Completed vote-by-mail ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day at the Supervisor of Elections office. Completed vote-by-mail ballots cannot be accepted at a polling place on Election Day.
