Early Voter Turnout High In Duval First Unitary Election

Early voting ended on a positive note Sunday.

Duval County Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland says some 8,000 people cast ballots Sunday, which bodes well for overall turnout in the March primary election.

“We’ve already had about 26,000 more people vote in this election than the same time four years ago,” Holland said. “We’re hoping right now we exceed the 29 percent last time. That would only take us about 75,000 more voters, which we think that’s very doable.”
