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.
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.
