PASCO COUNTY, Fla. -- Election officials in Pasco County are looking to make things easier for residents to vote by mail.

The county's elections supervisor Brian Corley says due to the "unprecedented nature of the 2020 election cycle," folks voting by mail during the upcoming primary and general elections will not be required to pay the postage to return their ballot.

Corley also said he believes social distancing guidelines may generate longer lines and wait times at voting sites. Because of this, the county is promoting the mail-in ballots as a convenience to voters.

Pasco County residents can request a vote-by-mail ballot by clicking here.

Vote-by-mail ballots are mailed about 40 days before each election when a request is on file, but voters can continue to request ballots up to 10 days before an election
