SAMPLE BALLOTS


 *****************************************************

The Calhoun County Canvassing Board will meet at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, to canvass absentee and provisional ballots for the November 4, 2014 General Election. This meeting is open to the public and will be held in the Calhoun County Supervisor of Elections Office in the Calhoun County Courthouse, 20859 Central Avenue East, Room 117, Blountstown, Florida.

Sealed absentee ballots for the General Election received prior to 11 a.m. on November 4th will be available for public inspection in the Supervisor of Elections Office from 11 a.m. until the Canvassing Board convenes at 1 p.m. Immediately, afterward, those absentee ballots will be opened and processed, but not tabulated. Tabulation of all absentee ballots will not begin until after 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. Any ballots received between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, will be available for public inspection until opened. Those wishing to inspect absentee ballots received during that time period must be present. Shortly after receipt, those ballots will be opened and processed, but not tabulated. 

Pursuant to Section 101.68(2)(c)2, Florida Statutes, if any elector or candidate present believes that an absentee ballot is illegal due to a defect apparent on the voter’s certificate, he or she may, at any time before the ballot is removed from the envelope, file with the Canvassing Board a protest against the canvass of that ballot, specifying the precinct, the ballot, and the reason he or she believes the ballot to be illegal. A challenge based upon a defect in the voter’s certificate may not be accepted after the ballot has been removed from the mailing envelope.

The Calhoun County Canvassing Board will reconvene at 7 p.m. on November 4, 2014 to canvass precinct returns and provisional ballots.

Prior to adjourning on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, the Calhoun County Canvassing Board will conduct a random selection of a race from all available races on the ballots and a precinct in order to conduct a manual audit of the voting system. The date and time of the public audit will be chosen and announced at that time. 

It may become necessary for the Calhoun County Canvassing Board to reconvene to canvass absentee ballots after November 4, 2014.  If so, the time and date will be posted at the Calhoun County Supervisor of Elections Office and announced at the conclusion of the November 4, 2014 meeting.

In accordance with the Sunshine Law of Florida, all Canvassing Board meetings are open to the public. 

Note: Section 286.0105, Florida Statutes, states that if a person decides to appeal any decision by a board, agency, or commission with respect to any matter considered at a meeting or hearing, he or she will need a record of the proceedings, and that, for such purpose, he or she may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, which record includes the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be based.
