Posted: Updated:

Absentee voting goes high-tech in the City of Sarasota and Town of Longboat Key. Wednesday, the Supervisor of Elections Office for Sarasota County announced that absentee voters can now track their ballots online.

Besides requesting an absentee ballot, the online service allows voters to check their registration status, party affiliation, and local polling place.

In order to take advantage of this service, voters can go to http://www.sarasotavotes.com/. Once there, select the "Vote by Mail" icon at the top of the homepage. Next choose "Track your Absentee Ballot" form the menu and enter the request information to track your absentee ballot and access other voter information.

Requests for absentee ballots for the March 12, 2013 City of Sarasota Regular and Town of Longboat Key General election to be mailed must be received by the supervisor of elections no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6.

Supervisor of Elections Kathy Dent reminds absentee voters that, to be counted, the voted ballot must be received in the supervisor of elections office no later than 7 p.m. on election day. Marked absentee ballots may not be turned in at a polling place on election day.

Dent also reminds voters whose signatures may have changed since they last voted that signature updates must be made on a Florida Voter Registration Application and presented to the supervisor of elections office prior to the start of the absentee ballot canvass, which is at noon on Monday, March 11.
