The Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Office reports that 1,190 registered Republicans took advantage of early voting on the first two days of early voting in the state's Republican Primary.
So far, out of 9,055 absentee ballots mailed out at the request of Republican voters, 4,462 absentee ballots have been returned. Voters can return absentee ballots up to 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Early voting continues through Saturday, Jan. 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the county’s three Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Offices:
• Sarasota County Terrace Building, 2001 Adams Lane, Sarasota;
• R.L. Anderson Administration Building, Room 114, 4000 Tamiami Trail, Venice;
• Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Office, 13640 Tamiami Trail, North Port.
Florida Law requires voters to present photo and signature ID upon entering the polling place and prior to voting. A voter who appears at the polls without photo and signature ID will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot. Because Florida is a closed primary state, only registered Republicans will be eligible to vote in the primary. Voters who have questions may contact the supervisor of elections office at 861-8600 or visit the SOE website at www.SarasotaVotes.com.
Sarasota County has 119,962 registered Republicans.
