Seminole County Elections Supervisor Chris Anderson said in this case it just meant the entire apartment complex could vote at the designated polling location, including the voter whose specific number was not listed. And it’s if residents choose to vote on election day.

“Your voter card is not necessary. It’s just informative. Your referenced zip code, or your unit number, has no bearing on your right to vote,” Anderson said. “If you have this card in the mail, it means you are a registered voter and you have the green light to go vote.”

Anderson said that while her office has received calls about general voting information questions, the lack of data on voter ID cards does not appear to be a widespread concern among residents.

Seminole County voters can also go to the County Supervisor of Elections website to verify their information.

This comes after Marion County election officials said Wednesday that new voter information cards were being issued following a printing issue by an outside vendor affecting approximately 200,000 voters whose ZIP codes are n were not correctly listed.

Back in Seminole County, election leaders said they are working to ensure residents have a seamless voting experience, offering guidance to new and seasoned voters.

“Make sure your address is up to date. If you’re voting by mail, make sure your signature is up to date. If you’re going to vote early, it doesn’t matter where you are in the county as long as you’re a registered voter said Anderson.

He said it was also essential that voters check their voter information card if they choose to vote on Election Day, as their electoral site may have changed due to redistricting. As a result, election officials added two more polling stations on Election Day.

“If you’re going to vote by mail, again, you can bring it to us and your mail-in ballot must be returned to the Elections Office Supervisor by 7 p.m. on election night,” Anderson said.

In Seminole County, early voting runs Aug. 13-20. For more information, visit the Supervisor of Elections website.
