Voters in Panama City, Florida can request a vote-by-mail ballot from their local election supervisor. This can be done in person, by mail, email, fax, or phone. Only the voter or a designated member of their immediate family or legal guardian can make the request. Immediate family includes the voter's spouse, parent, child, grandparent, or brother.
Active duty United States Uniformed Services and merchant marine members, their spouses and dependents, and United States citizens living abroad can apply for voter registration or request a ballot by mail using a federal postcard application (FPCA). This can be obtained from an election assistance officer or online at www.fvap.gov. Your local election supervisor will have information about secure vote-by-mail mailboxes in your county. The election supervisor must mail the ballot within two business days of the request but no later than ten days before election day. The request to receive a vote-by-mail ballot covers all elections up to the end of the calendar year and the following regularly scheduled general elections starting from the date the request was submitted. You can also designate someone to pick up your vote-by-mail ballot on election day or nine days before election day.
The FPCA's mail-in vote-by-mail request will be valid for all elections and until the next two regularly scheduled general elections. If you include an email address in your request to vote by mail abroad, your Electoral Supervisor will send you an email with the names of the candidates that will appear on the ballots for the primary and general elections no later than 30 days before each election.
