Early Voting on Hold in Some Florida Counties

August 18th, 2008 by flanews

Eight counties shut down early voting sights in preparation for Tropical Storm Fay. Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, and Lee counties will close early voting locations tomorrow. Election supervisors closed polls in order to keep voters off the roads. More than 120,000 Floridians have already early voted. Secretary of State Kurt Browning said election officials are watching the weather.

“We’ll continue to monitor and work with those counties and monitor the progress of early voting and we’ll suspend when we need to, to ensure the safety of Florida’s votes,” said Browning.

Election officials say closing the polls for a few days should not affect turnout. Early voting ends August 23rd. The primary is August 26th.
