Florida Early Voting in GOP Primary Goes Statewide

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Sixty-two counties are opening polls for early voting in the Republican presidential primary.

When polls open Saturday, Florida voters can cast ballots ahead of the Jan. 31 primary. The early voting begins on the same day South Carolina holds its GOP primary.

Five counties — Hillsborough, Hardy, Hendry, Monroe and Collier — opened early voting stations on Monday. That’s because a new law that shortens the number of days early voting can be held doesn’t apply to them.

In the 62 counties that begin voting Saturday, polls will be open for eight days. It will close three days before the election.
