Several of Florida’s 67 supervisors of elections are asking voters to cast their ballots by mail for the Aug. 18 primary and Nov. 3 general election.
Escambia County’s supervisor is among them.
Unlike some other states wrestling with mail-in balloting, David Stafford says Florida has been ahead of the curve for some time.
“Florida has been what’s called a ‘no excuse now, vote-by-mail state’ for years,” said Stafford. “We’re a very, what I would call ‘mature’ state when it comes to handling large numbers of vote-by-mail ballots.”
