Hernando County has a great legacy of military service and is considered home to over 23,000 veterans. From World War II to the current conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, Americans are always eager to show their support of our military and veterans. The Supervisor of Elections Office is proud to announce our Vote in Honor of a Veteran program and our Wall of Honor.
Every citizen of Hernando has in some way been affected by the various wars and conflicts our nation has fought over the years. A goal for our Vote in Honor of a Veteran Program is to encourage voter participation and to educate our younger voters about the sacrifices our veterans have made to preserve their right to vote. We believe there is no greater way to honor our veterans than by casting a ballot on Election Day. By exercising our right to vote, we show veterans the respect they deserve for protecting our right to vote. Veteran's who submit their biography to the Vote in Honor of a Vet program may be asked to participate in outreach events to educate young voters, though your participation is not necessary. Although the program is geared towards our younger voters the Supervisor of Elections Office is encouraging all citizens of Hernando County to Vote in Honor of a Veteran.
Our Veterans and active military are encouraged to fill out a biography form and send over to [email protected]. The submitted biographies will be posted on our Wall of Honor mural which was designed to honor Hernando County Veterans and active military. Biography forms may be completed by veterans, active military or family members of deceased veterans.
