With all of the crazy Florida voter recounting going on, are you curious to know if YOUR vote has been counted?
As of publication of this Blog, Andrew Gillum has now officially conceded to Ron DeSantis for the position of Florida Governor. We will soon hear the official word on the Rick Scott vs. Bill Nelson race.
So, are you curious to know if your specific ballot was counted? Could somebody have declared your ballot as “non-countable” for some reason (tear in the ballot, bubbles not filled in completely, etc.)?
Depending on the Florida county, there are different ways to check to see “if your vote counted”. The method of voting will determine how you search:
- Enter the name and birth date.
According to the Florida Division of Elections, provisional ballot voters will be given a Notice of Rights which will include instructions on how to find out if your provisional ballot was counted, and if not, the reason(s) why, will be contained in your notice of rights handed to you at the time that you vote a provisional ballot. Information as to whether your provisional ballot was counted or not must be made available no later than 30 days following the election.
