Pensacola, Florida (WKRGMore) — Saturday, November 5 is the last day for early voting in Florida before Election Day.
So far, about 25% of voters are voting in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, and some local officials say the figure should be higher.
“It’s a disturbing and troubling issue because what we’ve heard statewide is that even with early voting, mail-in ballots, and everything else, voter turnout actually tends to be lower than it was in 2018. Escambia County. Commission Chairman Jeff Burgosh said:
The race to vote includes governorship, the U.S. Senate, Congress, state legislatures, local elections, and constitutional amendments.
“We encourage people to go out and vote on the amendment and exercise their right to vote for the candidate of your choice. It is a great constitutional right that has cost lives and many have suffered, said Rumon May, Commissioner of Escambia County.
In Santa Rosa County, Commissioner Kolten Wright, also a member of the campaign committee, responded to concerns about the integrity of the election. He said voters have nothing to worry about.
“Santa Rosa County elections are conducted by law and there are no voter fraud or election fraud or other concerns in Santa Rosa County,” Wright said.
If you don’t vote on Saturday, you will have no choice but to vote in your regular precinct on Tuesday.
