Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Earl Lennard reminds voters of the law that requires renewals for voting by mail. All registered voters are eligible to vote by mail.
Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Earl Lennard has issued a reminder that voters have to renew their requests for "Vote By Mail” ballots. More than 270,000 requests have been mailed to voters who either requested a ballot in the past or voted early in recent elections. Lennard notes that the renewal is necessary because the general election in 2010 served as the expiration period for many "Vote By Mail" requests. All registered voters are eligible to vote by mail, which affords them a chance to research their choices as they sit down to vote. “We wanted to inform voters of the new law, and provide them with the opportunity to enjoy the comfort and convenience of [voting] by mail,” Lennard said in a news release.

Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Earl Lennard was with Precinct 825 workers Monday in Brandon as they set up for the 2012 GOP Presidential Preference Primary on Jan. 31. Poll hours are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
At Precinct 825 in Brandon, Travis Abercrombie accompanied his boss, Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Earl J. Lennard, for a media viewing of the setup of an Election Day polling place. On hand, too, were Frank Behrendt and his wife of more than 50 years, Anne. And Ray McDonald, who graduated from Brandon High School in 1964, a year after Lennard himself graduated as an Eagle. As they set about their business, they took time to reflect on what it means to be able to vote in America, a story that transcends who votes and why along ideological and party lines. For this group of die-hards, it’s not about who you vote for, but rather that you do, indeed, vote, whether it’s at the GOP Presidential Preference Primary tomorrow, Jan…
