Florida’s Aug. 28 primaries have already happened for more than 250,000 voters.

As of this morning, 259,289 voters had returned ballots by mail, according to the Florida Division of Elections website.

The figure includes 120,939 Republicans and 98,493 Democrats.

In Palm Beach County, 8,836 voters have already cast ballots by mail.

Another 39,857 voters from minor parties or with no party affiliation have also voted statewide; they can’t weigh in on the GOP gubernatorial primary between Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis or the five-candidate Democratic race for governor, but can vote on judicial races and other nonpartisan contests on the Aug. 28 ballot.

In addition to voting by mail, in-person early voting begins Aug. 13 and runs through Aug. 26. Palm Beach County will have 15 early voting sites — find them by clicking here.
