Primary Election: AUGUST 28, 2018
We are so lucky to have a Governor’s Sterling Award Winning Elections Office and staff in Hillsborough County. Craig Latimer and his employees have worked so diligently to bring Hillsborough County the best in election service. Elections don’t just happen on one day anymore. With multiple voting options available, election time has become over a month long opportunity for each and every eligible resident to cast their vote! They make it so easy by offering multiple ways to vote in the upcoming election. Around 60% of ballots are cast before Election Day even rolls around by using Vote-By-Mail. Early Vote at select locations is also available in the few weeks before Election Day. Check the Supervisor of Elections website for info on Early Vote Precincts, to request a Vote By Mail ballot, or to check on other important voting information.
