In 2020, the Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Office became one of five pilot counties in the State of Florida to offer an accessible vote-by-mail ballot option. The Supervisor of Elections partnered with Democracy Live to offer a safe and secure method of voting by mail for voters with disabilities. Thanks to the outreach campaign by our community partners, over 30 voters voted in the 2020 General Election utilizing method.
As we prepare for the 2022 election cycle, the office’s partnership with Democracy Live continues and grows.
"I am proud to offer this program to the voters of Volusia County. My goal is to have safe and transparent elections, where all voters that are eligible to vote have the opportunity to vote, in the method that best suits them,” said Supervisor Lewis.
With Democracy Live, voters may request to receive an Accessible Vote-by-Mail Ballot that they may mark from the comfort of their own home, using accessibility tools they are familiar with. Most importantly, they can do all of this independently.
In addition, military and overseas voters have the ability to vote utilizing Democracy Live.
“We are excited to be able to provide a reliable and quicker tool that allows voters in the military and overseas to receive their ballot, mark it and return it to our office,” said Lewis.
Voters with disabilities, in the military or overseas can request to use Democracy Live at www.VolusiaElections.gov.
