Voters should have received new card

VICKY OAKESSupervisor of Elections, Vicky Oakes, reported to Historic City News that approximately 140,000 registered voters in St Johns County have been mailed a new Voter Information Card — the problem is, about 20,000 cards have been returned to the Elections Office by the US Postal Service as undeliverable.

Voters who have not received their cards or who need to make changes to their voter record are encouraged to update their information on-line at, by calling the Elections Office at (904) 823-2238 or in person at the Supervisor of Elections Office at 4455 Avenue A, Suite 101 – St. Augustine.

Voters are reminded that because of the recent redistricting, their voting information has changed. The Supervisor of Elections asks that voters please verify their information BEFORE going to vote. The voter information card contains the address, party affiliation, polling location, and district information.

When voting in person a voter information card is not required. The law requires photo and signature ID. Any voter without proper ID can still vote, but is required to vote a provisional ballot.
