Safe Voting Plan


Between Covid 19, slowdowns in mail delivery, President Trump’s threats of voter intimidation, and the Republican Party’s documented plans to deploy aggressive poll watchers, Vote By Mail and Early Voting are the safest options to make sure your vote counts


  1. Vote by Mail The best option is to return the ballot to the Supervisor of Elections drop box at 515 N. Main Street in Gainesville or to any early voting site before Election Day. The second best option is to fill it out and mail it as soon as you get it. 

  2. Early Voting  Vote early to avoid the crowds on election day.  If any challenge is mounted to your registration, this gives you time to resolve it. Several Locations to choose from.
