Early Voting

The Florida Primary is scheduled for Tuesday, August 18th, but the early voting period is established by the county Supervisor of Elections.

In Okaloosa County it starts on Saturday, August 8th:

Early Voting for the August 18 Primary Election will be held August 8 – August 15, 2020, 9:00 am – 6:00 pm all days, including Sunday.

Check the web site of your county to find out when it happens and where to vote.

I have already voted by mail as soon as I received my ballot. When I receive my ballot for the general election, I will complete it and return it immediately so if I get hit by a truck, I will still have voted against Trump. If there is a heaven, voting for Trump will certainly get you banned.
