Early voting for Florida’s Aug. 30 primary depends on where you live


Florida’s primary election takes place Tuesday, Aug. 30, but early voting will begin days, or in some cases weeks, earlier, depending on where you live in the Sunshine State. Here are the dates and some starting times for Florida’s largest counties.

In Miami-DadeDuval, Hillsborough and Palm Beach counties, early voting takes place for the maximum 14 days, Monday, Aug. 15 through Sunday, Aug. 28.

In the state capital of Tallahassee, early voting will run for one week, from Saturday, Aug. 20 to Saturday, Aug. 27.

In Broward County, early voting takes place beginning from Saturday, Aug. 20 to Sunday Aug. 28, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

In Pinellas County, early voting begins Saturday, Aug. 20 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 28. Voting times Monday-Friday are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. On weekends, it will run from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

In Sarasota County, early voting runs for one week, from Saturday, Aug. 20 to Saturday, Aug. 27.

The Polk County Supervisor of Elections’ website does not list specific dates, but says early voting begins 10 days before election day and ends on the Saturday before the election, which would mean it would run from Saturday, Aug. 20, to Saturday, Aug. 27.

Specific dates are not listed on the Orange County Supervisor of Elections website.
