Voting Information

Welcome

Okaloosa and Walton County residents: Are you ready to vote? The 2018 E-Voter is your one-stop-shopping place to learn about the candidates, local referendums and proposed constitutional amendments so you can cast an informed ballot. League urges all registered voters in Okaloosa and Walton Counties to take some time to invest in the future of your communities, your state and your nation by making smart decisions when you vote. If you are not registered to vote, you have until 9 October to do so if you want to participate in the General Election. Register on-line. Check out Be Ready to Vote for more nonpartisan voting information.

There are no local races in Okaloosa County on the November ballot, but there is one referendum. Due to the unexpected death of the incumbent in the race for Seat 2, South Walton Fire Commission, there are also no uncontested races in Walton County. [NOTE: Two write-in candidates are registered for Walton County Commission seats, but they have not campaigned or done any fundraising, so League considers those races uncontested.] Use the links at the top of this page to get more information on state and federal races, voting in your county, and the proposed constitutional amendments.
