Registered voters will be able to cast their ballots early at a convenient, central on-campus location this fall. Early voting will take place Monday, Oct. 22, through Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, in Room G50 of the J. Wayne Reitz Union. Parking will be available in the Reitz parking garage for voters.
UF wants to give registered voters an opportunity to participate in the mid-term elections. Through this partnership with the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections, UF is making it a priority to inform the student body and employees who are registered to vote in Alachua County of another way to vote.
As a recent administrative memo on political activity outlined, UF employees have important rights to freely participate in political campaigns (including registering and voting) in their personal capacity on their own time and not interfering with their work responsibilities. As state employees, university employees may not participate in campaigns during their work time, use their offices to influence or interfere with an election, or solicit funds in university buildings to support or oppose a candidate.
The University of Florida may not participate in any political campaign or provide anything of value to support or oppose a candidate for public office or ballot initiative. This includes using UF funds, facilities, personnel, email addresses and systems, social media or any other resources for political activities.
