Early Voting and Absentee Numbers Suggest Large Turnout

January 14th, 2008 by flanews

More than 400,000 voters have requested absentee ballots for the January 29th primary as early voting got underway throughout the state. More than 206,000 Republicans, 163,000 Democrats and 52,000 unaffiliated voters who didnt identify a party affiliation have asked for absentee ballots. As many as 2 million voters are expected to head to the polls before the primary on January 29th.

The combination of full slates on both parties and this tax question, I believe will push turnout into close to record numbers, if not an actual record, said Leon County Election Supervisor Ion Sancho.

Early voting ends Sunday, January 27th for the majority of counties in Florida. Some counties will end it on Saturday, January 26th.
