directs supervisors not to accept delivery of a voted absentee ballot at a polling place by a voter who does not want to vote in person, but instead to instruct the voter to "take the absentee ballot to the ofce of the supervisor of elections. Fla Admin CodeR 1S2034 (incorporating Form DSDE) A consistent understanding of the perinent requirements of the Election Code is essential to ensure that the casting and counting of absentee ballots is conducted in a fair, secure, ecient, and impartial manner. For that reason, I have chosen to respond to this inquiry by directive to all supervisors of elections In my capacity as the chief election ofcer of the State of Florida I hereby issue this directive for the purpose of maintaining uniformity in the interpretation and implementation of Florida election laws. Pursuant to my authority in section 97.012(16), Florida Statutes, I provide the following written direction to supervisors of elections on the perormance of their ofcial duties with respect to provisions of the Florida Election Code and rues goveing the retu of absentee ballots The Eection Code provides voters who have requested absentee ballots with multiple options as to how they ultimately cast their votes While a voter must retu an absentee ballot to the supervisor in order for it to be counted, a voter may instead elect to vote in person by delivering the absentee ballot to the voter's precinct or an early voting cite to be cancelled. §§ 101.68, 10169, Florida Statutes (203).In order to avoid consion and ensure that every absentee voter has the opportunity to cast his or her ballot, supervisors must understand and adhere to the laws goveing the proper location for receipt of absentee ballots under each circumstance
