THE POLK COUNTY SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS OFFICE CAN PROVIDE INFORMATION TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR CAMPAIGN. HERE'S WHAT'S AVAILABLE:
1. VOTER REGISTRATION INFORMATION:
Currently, there are over 400,000 active voters in Polk County. You may select voters from this group by the following criteria:
- Age group
- Inside or Outside of the City Limits
- Votes in past elections
Or any combination of the above criteria, (i.e., Auburndale city precincts, Libertarian, Males between the ages of 20 and 40, who voted 11/04/2008.)
2. MAIL IN BALLOT REQUEST INFORMATION:
* - Requires a signed acquisition oath according to F.S. 101.62(3) and can only be requested by:
-- A canvassing board
-- An election official
-- A political party or official thereof
-- A candidate who has filed qualification papers and is opposed in an upcoming election
-- Registered political committees
-- Registered committees of continuous existence
We can print mailing labels or create a file containing every voter who has requested an mail in ballot ballot for a specified election. We print these based on the date of the mail in ballot request, then we will print updates for the candidates as new requests come in.
3. WALK LISTS:
Voters can be printed on a walk list by selected precincts. These lists are sorted alphabetically by street name, then ascending order by house number. These walk lists have been useful to candidates who are planning to walk door-to-door. We can also select voters who have voted in certain elections.
4. PETITION INFORMATION:
You may request data based on voters who have signed certain petitions. Petitions are signed to allow candidates to qualify for candidacy or for ballot initiatives. For instance, you may request all voters who have signed candidates’ petitions, or those who have signed “Save Our Everglades” petitions.
5. SAMPLE COSTS:
||COST PER 1000
||5500 labels, cost is $47.02
||Up to 3 per month then $5.00
||5500 names, cost is $8.03
Voter data on CD will be produced in Excel (.xlsx) or comma separated value (.csv) format.
Contact Terry Hobbs, Deputy Supervisor of Elections or Laura Hayes at (863) 534-5888 to make any of the above requests. Most requests will be processed within three (3) working days; however, as the elections draw near, more time may be necessary to fulfill all of the requests.
Requests incurring charges exceeding $10.00 must be paid in advance. All other materials must be paid for at the time they are collected.
