Early Voting season is about to officially begin for residents of Duval County who are registered to vote in the State of Florida Monday.
From May 1, until May 14, eligible voters can participate in the electoral process by casting their ballots at any of the designated early voting sites throughout the county.
The Supervisor of Elections Main Office and all other locations will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 pm on weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekends. This extended timeframe is intended to allow voters greater flexibility in casting their ballots and to reduce the number of people voting on Election Day.
Election day falls on Tuesday, May 16, with no early voting on the Monday before an election.
Early voting is open to any registered voter living in Duval County, regardless of their political affiliation. The early voting sites are equipped with secure ballot intake stations (drop boxes) where voters can submit their ballots.
