FL: Record Numbers Of Voters

Early voting was off to a racing start Monday in Santa Rosa and Escambia counties as record numbers ventured to the polls.

Ballot-casting for the Nov. 4 general election started at the Santa Rosa County elections office locations in Milton and Gulf Breeze at 8:30 a.m.

Santa Rosa County Supervisor of Elections Ann Bodenstein said record numbers of voters showed up. Escambia County totals shattered the previous one-day record for early voting, Supervisor of Elections David Stafford said.

“I don’t have all the final figures, but I believe we crushed any single-day (early voting) records,” Stafford said. He estimated by day’s end, 3,040 voters cast early ballots.

By day’s end, 1,620 Santa Rosa voters cast ballots. That’s more than 1 percent of the estimated 107,355 voters registered in Santa Rosa County.
