Vote in Honor of a Veteran


The sacrifices our veterans have made protecting our rights and freedoms stand as examples that emphasize the importance of taking our responsibilities seriously, including the right to vote. The Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office is honored to provide the Vote in Honor of a Veteran program to our voters. Our goal for this program is to encourage voter participation among our entire voting population, and to educate our youth about the sacrifices our veterans have made and continue to make every day so that we may continue to live in a democratic society. By exercising our right to vote, we show veterans and service members the respect they earned for protecting our nation. Veterans have always served us with honor. Let us give them the gratitude they deserve.

 

A Call for Heroes

 

The Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office is currently putting a call out for nominations to honor military men and women who have served or are currently serving in the U.S. Military.

Whether the nominee is a veteran from a past war, or is someone who is currently serving, the Supervisor of Elections Office wants to honor service men and women connected to Collier County voters. Those who wish to participate in this program, please fill out the Vote in Honor of a Veteran Biography Form and submit the information with photos to be exhibited on a traveling Honor Wall at local outreach events.

Completed biographies, copies of photos, and other information can be emailed to electionworker@colliergov.net. Participants can also hand deliver information to the Supervisor of Elections Office, or mail to: Supervisor of Elections, Rev Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Building, 3750 Enterprise Avenue, Naples, FL 34104 ATTN: Training Dept.

Our goal for this program is to personalize the voting experience for everyone and show our appreciation to those who have given so much to us all so that we may continue to live in freedom and exercise our right to vote. The next time you vote, Vote in Honor of a Veteran.
