With the Aug. 18 local and state primary three weeks away, mail-in votes already are streaming into Florida’s 67 supervisor of elections offices.

As the debate rages from the White House and elsewhere about voting by mail, the state of Florida can rest on its laurels — and history.

“We’ve been an almost entirely paper state for many years, said Escambia Elections Supervisor David Stafford. “There was a small segment of votes that were cast on touch screens, to comply with the federal disability requirement.”

Florida’s 2020 Primary Election is now about a month away, set for Tuesday, August 18. To help Escambia and Santa Rosa county voters prepare, the League of Women Voters of the Pensacola Bay Area has launched its non-partisan online election resource, VOTE411.org.

VOTE411.org was launched by the League of Women Voters Education Fund in 2006.
