The Department of State’s Division of Elections is providing vote-by-mail (formerly referred to as absentee*) ballot and early voting statistics during Florida’s 2016 General Election. The Division provides these statistics to the general public in an effort to deliver an even higher level of public service. Please note that Florida law does not require generation of vote-by-mail and early voting statistics in this format. See the “Vote-by-Mail Provided (Not Yet Returned),” “Voted Vote-by-Mail,” and “Voted Early” tabs for county-by-county breakdowns.
The statistics provided below reflect totals based on daily file uploads from Florida’s 67 counties. Each county sends only one of each type of activity report daily. The Department of State updates and refreshes the website daily at 8 a.m., 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. (Eastern Time) to ensure that all available uploads from the counties are reflected on the statistics webpage.
