IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SPECIAL DISTRICT CANDIDATE QUALIFYING 2020

Notice from Lee County Supervisor of Elections April 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is with much thought and consideration that we find it necessary to limit in-person contact at our office.  Doing so will help minimize the potential exposure of our staff and candidates to the virus.  Our branch offices remain closed until further notice.  Our Main Office located at 2480 Thompson St., Fort Myers will remain open offering limited essential services by appointment only.

As Candidate Qualifying approaches, we have started thinking ahead.  Attached, are qualifying documents and instructions. 
Attachments:  Special District Qualifying Instructions and Qualifying Documents

We would appreciate your help in contacting the board members that are up for election.  If the incumbent plans on filing for their current position in the November 3, 2020 General Election, the attached qualifying forms can be completed and either mailed to our office or emailed to candidates@lee.vote.

We can accept qualifying documents and the qualifying fee of $25.00 beginning 05/25/2020.  We ask Candidates not to submit documents before 05/25/2020.  Qualifying ends at NOON on 06/12/2020.

The Qualifying Department will be available by email and on a limited basis by phone if the candidate has any questions regarding the qualifying documents.  Due to reduced staff at this time, email is the preferred method of communication.  The attached forms are also on our website at the following link:
