Vote by Mail Vote by Mail

Any registered voter may request a ballot to be mailed to them, with no reason needed. Voting by mail is easy and convenient, and allows you to vote if you can’t physically get to the polls during early voting or on Election Day. A member of the voter’s immediate family or legal guardian may also request a ballot for the voter, if directly instructed to do so by the voter.

The easiest way to get your Vote-by-Mail ballot is by completing the Online Mail Ballot Request Form, or by calling the Okaloosa County SoE at 850-689-5600. You can also send an email request.

Follow the instructions to complete and return your Vote-by-Mail ballot, then click here to track its status. If you forgot to sign your Vote-by-Mail ballot, you can still recover. Get more info on how to correct your Vote-by-Mail ballot. 

Vote-by-Mail ballots must be returned to the elections office by 7:00 pm on Election Day, so be sure your vote counts by mailing it early or returning it in person.

Note: Your voted absentee ballot must be turned in at one of the two SoE offices (in Shalimar and Crestview). You may not turn it in at your precinct on Election Day.

Members of the United States Uniformed Services on active duty and the Merchant Marines, their spouses and dependents, and United States citizens residing outside of the United States have additional options and allowances when it comes to voting by mail, including getting the ballot sooner and by electronic means.
