If you have not registered to vote by mail, (VBM)PLEASE do so now.  Contact your Supervisor of Elections (SOE) and request a Vote by Mail ballot for “all elections.”  If you live outside Charlotte County, you can find your SOE by Googling your county+supervisor of elections.    Many counties allow you to do this over the phone or online.  You do not have to make a trip to the SOE’s office to request your VBM ballot. Statistic show that 80% of voters who have a physical ballot in their hands will vote.  This is your insurance policy for voting in November. In Charlotte County you can phone the SOE’s office at 941-833-5400 or go online to www.charlottevotes.com to request your VBM ballot.
