Ways to vote in Lee County this November

Election season is coming up fast.

On Tuesday, the League of Women Voters filed a complaint in federal court against the Florida Secretary of State.

Right now, early voting is not allowed on college campuses. The League is looking to change that.

In the mean time, here is a list of ways to vote. We talked to Lee County Elections Office Supervisor Tommy Doyle to discuss your options:

  1. Vote by mail – You can go online to request a ballot to be mailed to you. You can call the office at 239-533-8683 or go online at to send in an application. Make sure you get the application in five days before the election.
  2. Early voting – In Lee County, there are 10 locations where you can vote early. In Collier County there are nine. You’ll have between 10 and 15 days to make early voting work with your schedule.
  3. Election Day voting – Find your precinct, show up with your ID, and vote.

“Early voting is very popular because you can go anywhere,” Supervisor Tommy Doyle said. “You don’t have to go to your precinct like Election Day. If you’re driving by an early voting site you can pull in there and vote.”
