With rain, wind and possible flooding threatening Florida by early next week, Gov. Rick Scott and state elections officials joined the chorus of local supervisors urging voters to take advantage of early voting.
The state’s primary elections are Tuesday. And Scott and Secretary of State Ken Detzner said voters would be wise to vote ahead of that date.
The National Hurricane Center expects the weather to hold until early Sunday. But after that, it’s uncertain what kind of tropical system could be over the Sunshine State.
“While it is too premature to determine if voters will be impacted by adverse weather conditions, I encourage all Florida voters who have not voted by mail to get ahead of any possible weather disturbances by voting early,” Detzner said. “All 67 Florida counties are offering early voting through Saturday, August 27.”
Palm Beach County is among 10 counties also allowing voting on Sunday.
