Vote By Mail ballots due in our office by 7 p.m. Aug. 30


On Election Day, you must vote in your precinct! Click on the Find My Precinct button to see where you vote on Election Day. If you do not vote in the correct precinct, your ballot will not count. If you've moved, you can update your address by clicking here or calling (813) 744-5900. You can also update your address at the polling place on Election Day. Just make sure you're at the polling place assigned to where you are currently living. 


If you requested a mail ballot, the ballot must be in our office (not postmarked, but in our office) by 7 p.m. Election Day. Click on the Track My Ballot button to see when it was mailed to you and when we receive the ballot back in our office.  If you haven't mailed it yet, please drop your ballot off at any of our four offices Monday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m, or Tuesday, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m. The outside of our Vote By Mail envelope must be signed. If you forgot to sign it, click here.

Unofficial Turnout to Date

New Voting Equipment

Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer introduces you to new voting equipment that is being used in every polling place in Hillsborough County in 2016.


Interested in Adopt A Precinct?  

The concept is simple, and powerful. Nonprofits recruit volunteers to be poll workers, and those volunteers donate their Election Day earnings to the nonprofit. Everybody wins with this program. We get terrific poll workers, nonprofits earn much-needed funds, and our community benefits from the work the nonprofits are doing. 

Find out more about the program here and contact us if you're interested in joining the program!



Q: What is a closed primary?
A:  Florida has closed primaries, which means you must be affiliated with a party to vote in that party's election. Our August Primary Election will include Democratic races, Republican races, Libertarian races and nonpartisan races (like school board and judges). That means every registered voter will get a ballot, but the ballots will be different depending on party affiliation. 

Q: Are Vote By Mail ballots always counted?
A:  Yes. By law, all Vote By Mail ballots are counted. In fact, they are the first votes we report on Election Night. 

Q: Why does Hillsborough County publish voting material in English and Spanish? 
A:  Hillsborough County is a "covered jurisdiction" under the Language Minority Groups provision of the Voting Rights Act, so we are required by law to publish voting material in both English and Spanish. 

Here's what our Supervisor of Elections and some of our staff thought about being the first elections office to earn the prestigious Governor's Sterling Award.
