Your Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Update
Vote Alachua Update
From the Supervisor
Since the beginning of June, more than 160 Alachua County voters have signed up to be election workers. Our office has been amazed by the support our community has shown in volunteering to work Election Day.
In my June Gainesville Sun column, I wrote about the vote-by-mail process and all of the safeguards that make voting by mail safe and secure for our voters. You can read it by clicking here.
On June 12, I was elected without opposition to a second four-year term as your Supervisor of Elections. I'm grateful to be able to continue to serve you as your Supervisor of Elections and have the opportunity to do work that I love and have a passion for.
Elections Clerk Kandy Rochow celebrated her three-year work anniversary! Kandy is one of the first faces or voices voters see or hear, and we're grateful for the positive attitude she brings to her position and all of her interactions.
Thanks for all you do, Kandy!
This month, we trained hundreds of election workers for the 2020 Primary Election. Election workers were required to wear masks — just as they will be during early voting and on Election Day.

"Our office has received numerous calls from voters who received apparently handwritten postcards encouraging voting by mail. These mailers list our office’s number and the email address of a staff member. Some of the mailers have included political statements endorsing the Democratic Party."
