Gearing up for November’s special election


Your St. Johns County Elections team is currently making plans for the upcoming Special Referendum Election scheduled for Nov. 3.

This is the special election for the One-half cent sales surtax for new school facilities and safety, security and technology upgrades. Want information on the upcoming election? Be sure to visit www.votesjc.com for all your election information. You will find an Election Information Sheet which details all you need to know about the upcoming special election. The Election Information Sheet contains the ballot question, registration deadlines, information on absentee, early and Election Day voting.

Early voting will be conducted for 8 days at all 6 of our regular early voting locations. Dates are Oct. 24 through 31; Hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at all locations. Of course, your polling place will be open on Election Day (Nov. 3) 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

It’s not too early to request an absentee ballot for the election. You can make your request on-line by visiting our website, or simply call the Elections Office at (904) 823-2238.

In order to better serve our voters and accommodate recent and projected growth, a few changes to our polling locations have been made. Effective beginning with the Nov. 3 election changes for the Ponte Vedra area include Precinct 405 Sawmill Lakes Community Center has moved to the Ponte Vedra Presbyterian Church and combined with precinct 403.

Voters who have been affected by any of the precinct changes will receive notification in late September of the change of their polling place along with a new voter information card.

Sample ballots mailed to voters prior to each election also remind voters of their assigned election day polling location. Not sure where to vote? Visit our website and use the voter lookup. It’s a very useful tool you can use to locate your polling place, verify your address (or make changes), view your sample ballot, request an absentee ballot or see if you are already scheduled to receive one.

My staff and I are here to serve you and we will make it easy for you to vote. Please visit our office, call or use our online forms and resources to help you prepare for Election Day.
