How you can Vote
Florida law authorizes three methods of voting in each election:
- Vote by Mail
- Early Voting
- Election Day
Vote by Mail: In the 2016 Presidential Election 13,120 of Estero’s 24,300 registered voters requested Vote by Mail ballots and over 90% of them returned them by Election Day. As a result over 60% of all Estero votes cast in that elation were Vote by Mail ballots and Estero’ s voter turnout (Participation Rate) was over 80%, seventeen points higher than the County turnout of 62.6%.
Unfortunately the applications of over 5,300 Estero “Vote by Mail” voters
expired with the 2016 General Election.
It’s very easy to Vote by Mail in Florida, simply follow the Supervisor of Elections’ instructions here. This option is available to you anytime from now until about a week before election day.
Early Voting: The Supervisor of Elections must begin Early Voting 10 days prior to election day but can open the Early voting locations earlier. Early Voting locations are available on their website.
Election Day Voting: If you prefer to vote in person on Election Day, but don’t know the location of your Polling Place, you can look up the address here.
