Voting Information

Welcome

DeFuniak Springs residents: are you ready to vote? Your 2019 Municipal Election E-Voter is your one-stop-shopping place to learn about the candidates so you can cast an informed ballot. League urges all registered voters in DeFuniak Springs to take some time to invest in the future of your city by making smart decisions when you vote.

Candidate qualification ends on 18 March, and League sent a brief questionnaire to all the declared candidates, asking them to outline their priorities and goals if elected or re-elected. This E-Voter contains all the responses received, so the electorate can compare the candidates’ views and opinions. Use the links at the top of this page to get more information on the City Council and City Marshal candidates. You can compare responses and click on a candidate’s name to be connected to the appropriate campaign website or candidate statement, if available.

There is also a bonus page for May’s Special Election Sales Tax Referendum. It won’t appear on the April ballot, but forewarned is forearmed!

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.
