But if your name appears differently on the books, or if there is a residency question, or because you simply want to obtain your card in person, or to solve a myriad of problems that can or have appeared during every election time, an in-person visit may be essential. Having served on the canvassing board in the 2000 election, I saw far too numerous problems with ballots or signature cards or other aspects of voting to believe that people will not at some time need to visit the supervisor's office.

Is it just to register to vote, or are there other reasons? also, do you know, can't you register to vote when you get your state ID renewed? and/or at the libraries? just trying to get an idea as to what kind of impact this may have. thanks.

He has asked for our assistance. It seems that Ion Sancho, the Supervisor of Elections wants tomove his office from the current downtown location at 315 South CalhounStreet, Suite 110 to the old Circuit City building on Apalachee Parkway. The reason for the proposed move is to consolidate the administrative, warehouse and training branches of this office. The downside, aside from the cost is that the location is not accessible. There is 1 bus route that currentlyserves it as opposed to 26 routes at the current location.This item will be discussed at the upcoming County Commissioner's meeting on Tuesday, September 22nd at 3:00 p.m. The meeting will be held on the 5thfloor of the Courthouse. If you can attend, I would urge you to. In addition, you may email Ion Sancho, The Supervisor of Elections ation@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx with a copy to Bob Rackleff at bob.rackleff@xxxxxxxxx or you may call Mr. Sancho at 566-0930 to express your opinion regarding this move and its affect on accessibility. Should you wish to ask questionsof Commissioner Rackleff, you may reach him at 212-5663. Thank you. Sila P.S.
