Early voting for District 2 primary to run through August 20

Early voting for the Gulf County Board of County Commissioners District 2 Republican primary opened Saturday, August 13.

During early voting, which will last until August 20, registered voters in District 2 will be able to cast their ballot at one of two approved early voting locations in the county — The Supervisor of Elections’ office, located at 401 Long Avenue in Port St. Joe, or the Wewahitchka library, located at 314 N Second Street.

Registered voters may vote at either of these two locations during early voting. But on primary election day, August 23, they must report to their assigned voting precinct.

“Voting early is just like voting on election day,” reads the Gulf County Supervisor of Elections’ website. “Early voters should remember to bring a photo and signature identification with them.”

Voters who are not registered will not be able to do so in time to vote during the primary election. However, voters may still register for the November general election, where the primary’s winner will face Democratic challenger Michael Riley.
