(PALM BEACH COUNTY) — Early voting for next week’s Florida primary election wraps up on Sunday in Palm Beach county and so far more than 128-thousand votes have been cast out of nearly a million registered voters according to the Supervisor of Elections, Wendy Sartory Link. She says that so far they have tallied more than 111,000 vote by mail ballots and 17,000 early votes.
Early voting in Broward County also ends on Sunday, August 21st.
Florida is a “closed primary” state which means that only the voters registered within a specific political party can vote in that party’s Primary Election.
All registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, may vote on issues and nonpartisan races during a Primary Election.
Your party does not affect your ballot for any election other than a Primary Election.
Meanwhile, at least 20 people who voted in the 2020 election are being charged with voter fraud in Florida.
Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement Thursday, saying they broke the state’s election laws on felon voting rights.
DeSantis claims the individuals voted despite being disqualified due to prior convictions of either sexual assault or murder.
The third-degree felony carries a five-year prison sentence and five-thousand dollar fine.
