KISSIMMEE, Fla. – The start of early voting for the August elections in Osceola County is just two weeks away and the supervisor of elections is sending out new voter information cards.

Supervisor Mary Jane Arrington said voters need to check their voter information cards because, with redistricting, election day polling place information may have changed.

Redistricting may also have affected what legislative districts you are in.

Arrington said it’s also a good idea that Osceola County voters check their voter info cards to make sure all the information the county has on file is accurate, including your address and party affiliation.

You can also check your voter information by going to the county’s supervisor of elections website. There you can also request a vote-by-mail ballot, see your sample ballot to find out what you’ll be voting on, and also look up early voting locations.

Voters have found issues with voter information cards in Marion County and in Seminole County. The issues in Marion County were a printer’s mistake, supervisor Wesley Wilcox said, and voter records were not affected. In Seminole County, Elections Supervisor Chris Anderson said concerns about a lack of some information on the card had no bearing on the voter’s ability to vote.

Early voting starts in Osceola County on Aug. 8. The August election is on Aug. 23.

Voters will decide on party primaries, county commission races, city commission races, school board candidates and county and circuit judgeships.

While voter information cards contain important information, you do not need to bring it with you to the polling place in order to vote.
