Michael Ertel

Supervisor of Elections


Letter from Michael Ertel

Seminole County Supervisor of Elections

Thank you for caring enough about our republic

to be a registered and informed voter.

After all, the government belongs to “We the

People,” so please use this guide to help you

exercise your right to contact your elected

officials and learn more about how our

community is governed.

Over the past few years you may have seen

media reports about voting problems in the nation. You can be proud of

living in Seminole County as our office has won national and international

elections awards for ensuring every voter has the opportunity to cast a

ballot in a secure election. Media outlets as varied as MSNBC and Fox

News have singled out our home, Seminole County, Florida, as an example

of efficient, secure and fair elections administration.

But more important to our team is the input you provide us after each

election. We ask for – and act upon – suggestions from our residents

about your voting experience, so next time we can make it an even more

pleasant process. The bottom line for us is your comfort and confidence

in the process.

Our office has a simple eight word mission statement: Efficient

Elections, Excellent Service, Fiduciary Conservatism, Voter Confidence.

If at any point you feel our office is falling short of our mission, please

call me directly at 407.708.7712, on my cell at 407.687.3654, email me

at Ertel@VoteSeminole.org, or tweet me at @VoteSeminole.

Voter Guide — 2016

Our mission statement is not only a guiding set


of principles, but a reflection of how we conduct

the operations of the office. –Michael Ertel


Efficient Elections

One of the core functions of the office is ensuring the

elections are run fairly and efficiently. Seminole County

is consistently recognized as a leader in the efficient

operations of the elections process. From shorter lines than

other counties and states, adequately sized neighborhoodbased

polling locations, enough supplies and pollworkers,

to lightning-quick, accurate election night results, the

conduct of the office’s elections are never in doubt.

Excellent Service

One of the mantras in the Seminole County elections

office is to act as if the customers have somewhere else

to shop. We want our voters to be surprised by the service

they receive from our office. We distribute feedback

questionnaires in the lobby of our office and at each early

voting center and polling location. After each election,

the SOE and senior management team reviews each and

every card, and we act on suggestions, and implement

improvements, if needed.

Fiduciary Conservatism

Good government isn’t tied to being the highest-funded

operation. Seminole County consistently has the lowest

budget per capita in the central Florida region. Staffing

levels 20 years ago (for 125,000 registered voters) was 15

full-time staff and an SOE. Today our county has the same

sized staff servicing more than 265,000 registered voters.

For four straight years, the staff pay was frozen to the

previous year’s level, which was voluntarily matched by

Supervisor Ertel.

Voter Confidence

The bottom line of our mission statement is the confidence

of voters. No matter how efficient, how fair, how pleasant,

or how inexpensive the operation; if a voter doesn’t have

confidence their vote was counted accurately and fairly,

then we have failed that voter. The office’s measures to

ensure fair, open, secure and accurate elections have

been featured nationally in media outlets as varied as

MSNBC and Fox News as well as featured at statewide and

international elections conferences.

2016 Election Dates:

March 15 Presidential Preference Primary

August 30 Florida Primary

November 8 General Election

These are the regularly scheduled elections. For the most up-to-date

listing, please keep checking www.VoteSeminole.org for any special

elections which may be added to the schedule.

The registration deadline for each election is 29 days

prior to Election Day.

Registering to vote is easy. Simply complete the

application enclosed in the back of this brochure.

Applications are also available at any driver license

office, county library, WIC and DCF offices, post

office, or our office at 1500 East Airport Blvd. in

Sanford.

If you would like to register by mail, call our voter

hotline at 407.585.VOTE, and we’ll mail you an

application.

Polls are open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Voting is an open-book test

A sample ballot will usually be

available 25-30 days prior to an

election.

Check your mailbox or go to www.VoteSeminole.org

for more information.

We provide every voter with a personalized sample

ballot which will display the races which will appear

on your regular ballot, along with a map to your

polling location, information about the candidates

and more.

Voters are encouraged to review their sample ballot,

practice vote on it, and even take it with them to

their polling location or early voting center.

Voter Guide — 2016

Registering to vote in Florida has

never been easier!

If you have not already registered to vote in Florida,

our state voter registration application form is in the

back of this voter guide. Simply fill out the application,

tear it out of the guide, fold it, and mail it to us (we’ve

already printed our mailing address on it).

Updating your address and other info

has never been easier!

If you have moved from one address in Florida to another

address in Florida, you have many easy methods to

update your voter registration information and stay

current. You can use the application form as a vehicle

to update your address, or make the change by visiting

our website at www.VoteSeminole.org and clicking the

“Register & Update Record” link on the bottom of the

page. You can also call our voter hotline, 24 hours a day,

seven days a week at 407.585.VOTE (8683) and make the

change over the phone.

form to update your signature, change your party

affiliation, name or other details about your record.

At the polls on Election Day

Florida is one of the national leaders in providing

enhanced voting methods and opportunities. In

Seminole County whether you chose to vote at home

with an excuse-free vote-by-mail ballot, at one of

our many early voting centers in the weeks before an

election, or at the polls on Election Day, your ballot

is guaranteed to be kept secure, treated fairly and

counted accurately.

Voting on Election Day – or “Voting

Classic” – is still the most popular

method of casting a ballot in

Seminole County.

At 7 in the morning on Election

Day, your neighborhoodbased

polling location will

open its doors. For the next

12 hours, everyone in your

neighborhood who has yet to

vote will have an opportunity

to cast a ballot.

As you approach your neighborhood-based polling

location, you will notice a change from past elections.

Rather than line up based on your last name, there will

be one single line, which will queue to the next available

pollworker, who will be able to check you in using

Seminole County’s exclusive VotePass express check-in

system. Learn more about our new secure check-in system

at www.VotePass.org.

You will receive a paper ballot with secrecy sleeve and

be directed to a voting booth, where you can mark your

selections in private. You are encouraged to use the

personalized sample ballot our office mailed you a few

weeks before the election. Using the sample ballot makes

the process easier for you, and large-scale use of sample

ballots by your neighbors speeds up the voting line for you.

Once you have marked your ballot, head towards the exit,

where another pollworker will be next to the ballot box.

You’ll drop your ballot into the ballot box and receive your

“I Voted” sticker.

At one of our Early Voting Centers.

In the 2014 election cycle, Seminole County had

more early voting centers per square mile than any

other county in the Southeast United States. In future

elections, voting early will continue at times and dates

which will be announced in the months preceding the

election.

While voting lines in Seminole County are historically

shorter than other places in the country, many voters

are choosing to avoid the lines altogether. How? By

having us mail them an excuse-free mail-in ballot.

There is no line to vote when you vote by mail.

Voting early is just like voting at your polling location on

Election Day. Yet instead of going to your neighborhoodbased

polling location, you have the choice of many Early

Voting Centers in the county.

When you approach the Early Voting Center, you will be

asked to complete a card which prepares you for the

pollworkers on the inside. When you reach the pollworkers,

make sure to provide them the sign-in paperwork you

completed in line as well as your ID.

You will be presented your ballot with a secrecy sleeve

and directed to the voting booth, where you can cast your

ballot in private.

Once you have marked your ballot, head towards the exit,

where you can deposit your ballot in the ballot box and

receive your “I Voted” sticker.

In years past, voters who wished to receive an absentee

ballot had to provide a reason for making the request. Not

anymore. Anyone who wants to vote by mail may request

a ballot by:

• Calling our 24/7 voter hotline at

407.585.VOTE (8683)

• Logging onto www.VoteSeminole.org

• Completing the ballot request form in

the back of this guide and mailing it

back to us.

You will receive your ballot in the mail about a month

before Election Day. You can take your time completing

it, as long as we receive it back at our office by 7 p.m. on

Election Day.

Just like a Fed-Ex or UPS package, you can track the

status of your absentee ballot online by going to our own

website www.TrackMyAbsentee.com.

Florida Voter Registration Application

Part 1 – Instructions (DS-DE 39, R1S-2.040, F.A.C.)(eff. 10/2013)

Where to Register: You can register to vote by completing this application and delivering it in person or by mail to

any supervisor of elections’ office, office that issues driver’s licenses, or voter registration agency (public assistance

office, center for independent living, office serving persons with disabilities, public library, or armed forces recruitment

office) or the Division of Elections. Mailing addresses are on page 2 of this form.

To Register in Florida, you must be:

• a U.S. citizen,

• a Florida resident,

• at least 18 years old (you may pre-register at 16 or 17,

but cannot vote until you are 18).

Deadline to Register: The deadline to register to vote is 29 days before any election. You can update your

registration record at any time, but for a Primary Election, party changes must be completed 29 days before that

election. You will be contacted if your new application is incomplete, denied or a duplicate of an existing registration.

Your Voter Information Card will be mailed to you once you are registered.

If you have been convicted of a felony, or if a court has

found you to be mentally incapacitated as to your right to

vote, you cannot register until your right to vote is restored.

Identification (ID) Requirements: New applicants must provide a current and valid Florida driver’s license number

(FL DL#) or Florida identification card number (FL ID#). If you do not have a FL DL# or FL ID#, then you must provide

the last four digits of your Social Security number (SSN). If you do not have any of these numbers, check “None.” If

you leave the field and box blank, your new registration may be denied. See section 97.053(6), Fla.Stat.

If you do not meet any ONE of these requirements, you

are not eligible to register.

Questions?

Special ID requirements: If you are registering by mail, have never voted in Florida, and have never been issued one

of the ID numbers above, include one of the following with your application, or at a later time before you vote: 1) A

copy of an ID that shows your name and photo (acceptable IDs--U.S. Passport, debit or credit card, military ID,

student ID, retirement center ID, neighborhood association ID, or public assistance ID); or 2) A copy of an ID that

shows your name and current residence address (acceptable documents--utility bill, bank statement, government

check, paycheck, or other government document).

The special ID is not required if you are 65 or older, have a temporary or permanent physical disability, are a member

of the active uniformed services or merchant marine who is absent from the county for active duty, or a spouse or

dependent thereof, or are currently living outside the U.S. but otherwise eligible to vote in Florida.

Contact the Supervisor of Elections in your county:

http://election.dos.state.fl.us/SOE/supervisor_elections.shtml

Visit the Florida Division of Elections’ website at:

http://election.dos.state.fl.us.

Political Party Affiliation: Florida is a closed primary election state. In primary elections, registered voters can only

vote for their registered party’s candidates in a partisan race on the ballot. In a primary election, all registered voters,

regardless of party affiliation, can vote on any issue, nonpartisan race, and race where a candidate faces no

opposition in the General Election. If you do not indicate your party affiliation, you will be registered with no party

affiliation. For a list of political parties, visit the Division of Elections’ website at: http://election.dos.state.fl.us/

Race/Ethnicity: It is optional to list your race or ethnicity.

Boxes: Please check boxes () where applicable.

CRIMINAL OFFENSE: It is a 3rd degree felony to submit

false information. Maximum penalties are $5,000 and/or 5

years in prison.

PUBLIC RECORD: Once filed, all information including your

phone number and email address as provided become

public record except for the following which can only be

used for voter registration purposes: your FL DL#, FL ID#,

SSN, where you registered to vote, and whether you

declined to register or to update your voter registration

record at a voter registration agency. Your signature can be

viewed but not copied. (Section 97.0585, Fla. Stat.)

Numbered rows 1 through 7 and 12 must be completed for a new registration.
