The Lake County Supervisor of Elections Office is pleased to provide our voters with the Vote in Honor of a Veteran Program. The intent of this program is to encourage voter participation, as well as remind citizens about the contributions Lake County veterans have made. Countless sacrifices have been made by many brave men and women on behalf of this great state and nation. They serve to protect our freedoms, including our sacred right to vote. We wish to honor their sacrifice by dedicating our vote in their honor. Citizens who wish to honor a veteran with their vote will be given a “My Vote Honors Veteran __________ ” sticker instead of the regular “I voted” sticker at the polls. We encourage voters to fill in the blank on the sticker with the name of the veteran they wish to honor, and then to take a photo wearing the sticker to post on social media. We are @LakeElections on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Hopefully this will inspire others to honor our veterans with their vote.
Submit a Veteran
To add a veteran's photo to our Wall of Honor, the veteran or a family member should fill out and submit a Veteran Biography Form. Forms can be submitted online below, via email, mailed to our office or dropped off in person. If possible, please include a photo (preferably in uniform). We will post their information on our wall of honor on our website, on social media outlets, as well as display them in our office. We ask you not to mail us original photos, but we would be glad to scan them for you if you want to drop by our office.
All individuals who ever served our country, whether in peacetime or wartime, past or present, will be included. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 352-343-9734 or via email at [email protected].
