Almost a Million Floridians Cast Early Votes

January 28th, 2008 by flanews

Nearly one million early and absentee voters have already cast ballots in Tuesday’s presidential primary. The Secretary of State’s spokesman said that number also includes 100,000 independent voters who wanted to vote for or against Amendment 1, which would cut property taxes. Election officials are not anticipating any problems tomorrow.

“This is the last election where touch screens will be used in 14 of the counties,” said Sterling Ivey, the spokesman for Florida’s Secretary of State. “After this election, beginning in July, the counties are required to move to an optical scan voting system. So, the supervisors are using equipment and machines are using equipments and machines that they’ve used in previous elections. We don’t expect there to be any problems with polls tomorrow. There haven’t been any noticeable problems with the early voting sites with the equipment or the technology used for the last two weeks.”

There are close to 8 million registered voters in Florida.
