Early Voting On Pace To Break Records

October 23rd, 2008 by flanews

Were just four days into early voting and an estimated one million Floridians have already cast ballots. The Secretary of States office says close to half a million cast ballots at early voting sites since Monday. Some political groups say half a million people have already cast absentee ballots. Secretary of State Spokeswoman Jennifer Davis says Florida is on pace to break early voting records.

The information were getting from counties is in some cases double the numbers they got in 2006 or 2004. We know is Miami-Dade got 11,000 the first day and got 16,000 Wednesday. We believe these are record numbers, said Davis.

In some parts of the state people waited three hours to cast a ballot. The Congressional Democrats are asking for an extension on early voting to keep pace with the record turnout.
