What should you do if you need to self-quarantine but still want to vote in the Presidential Primary Election Tuesday?
Duval County Supervisor of Elections Mike Hogan says you need to call his office at 904-630-1414 and you'll be able to designate someone to pick up a mail ballot for you. That designated person must show their ID to pick up your ballot.
Your ballot must be turned in by 7 p.m. on election day, not postmarked by then. You can mail it or your designated person can deliver it in person.
At voting locations, Hogan says poll workers are disinfecting equipment every hour and there is plenty of hand sanitizer. Polling locations have been moved out of assisted living facilities.
He doesn’t advise people bring their own pens because they might be the wrong color and then the tabulator wouldn't be able to read it. You are allowed to bring one, though, and it must be black. He says all pens and styluses are wiped down.
Voting Location Changes:
- Precinct 607 voters who normally go to Augustine Landing must now go to Mandarin Regional Library, 3330 Kori Rd.
- Precinct 1101 voters who normally go to Elm Croft of Timberlin Park must now go to the Park at Polenza, 10023 Belle Rive Blvd.
- Voters who usually go to Cathedral Towers (senior living) will now vote at the supervisor of elections headquarters on Monroe Street
- Precinct 310 voters who normally go to the Windsor at San Pablo must now go to Fire Station #59, 14097 Wm Davis Parkway.
- Voters who usually go to Cathedral Terrace (senior living) will now vote at the supervisor of elections headquarters on Monroe St.
- Voters at St. Peter’s Church will be moved as well but because a pipe burst, not because of coronavirus
- Election Day Precinct 711, located in the Eastside Community Center, PAL, 1050 Franklin St, will not be available as a polling location Election Day, March 17, 2020. As an alternative, the polling location for Precinct 711 is being relocated to Robert F. Kennedy Community Center, Gymnasium and Park, 1133 Ionia St.
Hogan says he does not have any plans to talk with other officials about pushing back the election, nor has he heard of anyone discussing it. He says that would be up to the governor.
Hogan also doesn’t advise people to bring their own pens because they might be the wrong color, meaning the tabulator wouldn't be able to read it. Voters are allowed to bring one, though, and it must be black. He says all pens and styluses are wiped down.
