From The Supervisor of Elections website at martinvotes.com:

The August 26th primary election is fast-approaching, so please review our voter checklist and make sure you are election-ready.

•To vote in the primary, you must declare your party affiliation no later than July 28th; Florida is a closed-primary state limiting you in the primary to the party you are registered with. All voters registered with a minor party, or no party affiliation, can vote for judicial and school board races.

•Make sure your information is current. If you’ve moved or changed your name, update those changes before you cast your votes. You can check your status at our website (www.MartinVotes.com), in person at 135 SE Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Stuart, or call the elections office at (772) 288-5637.

•If you vote early, or in person at your precinct on August 26th, remember to bring signed photo I.D. – driver’s license, passport, military ID, student ID, Florida ID card, even a bank debit or credit card will suffice as long as it has your photo and signature.

•If you have an iPhone or iPad, you can download our free Martin Votes App in the App Store to update your address, find your precinct, view a sample ballot or sign up as a poll worker.

•Know your voting options: Vote early (8 a.m. to 5 p.m. August 16th-23rd); vote on Election Day or vote by mail-the preferred choice of many.

In fact, more than 40 percent of Martin County voters vote by mail-and it’s not just for our seasonal residents. Many year-round residents enjoy the convenience of our vote-by-mail option. Just make sure your ballot arrives at our office no later than 7 p.m. Election Day.

Call 288-5637 to request your vote-by-mail ballot, which you should receive as early as 30 days before the election. Residents in the military or living overseas will have their vote-by-mail ballots mailed to them 45 days before the election.
