The Florida Chamber of Commerce encourages you to vote in the upcoming primary election. Early voting has already begun in several counties, and for many other counties, early voting begins tomorrow, Saturday, August 16. Early voting offers you more flexibility in your schedule and often takes less time, as the lines are usually shorter than on Election Day (Tuesday, August 26).
To help keep Florida moving in the right direction, the Florida Chamber has endorsed candidates for Governor, Cabinet and the Florida Legislature that will help create opportunities for families and small businesses.

To find out where early voting locations are in your county, visit FloridaWins.Org, click on “Get Involved” and review the information under No. 2 (Vote). This web page will give you the information you need to contact your local Supervisor of Elections, including a phone number, website and address. Simply call or visit your Supervisor of Elections website to learn about early voting locations in your area. Different counties may have different early voting dates and times, so be sure to check with the Supervisor of Election in your county.
Did you know, that you may also vote by mailing in an Absentee Ballot? Absentee voting refers to voting on a ballot received by mail or picked up by or for a person who is unable, cannot or simply does not want to go to the polls to vote during early voting or on Election Day. Under Florida law, any qualified voter can request an absentee ballot for any reason. Simply request an Absentee Ballot by phone, mail, or online at your county’s Supervisor of Elections office. But hurry, the deadline to request an Absentee Ballot is Wednesday, August 20, 2014.
Thank you for taking the time to vote in the upcoming elections!
