JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's Election Eve, and if you still have your absentee ballot in your hands, don't mail it.
Supervisor of Elections Jerry Holland says, "Well, I'll tell you it's probably going to be difficult if you're counting on the post office to get it to us by 7 p.m. Tuesday."
Instead, you have two options. Either drop off your absentee ballot at one of the two Supervisor of Elections Offices:
105 E. Monroe St.
5200-2 Norwood Ave.
"Or bring it to the polls," said Holland. "You'll surrender it and vote a ballot at the polls."
About 45% of Duval County voters took advantage of early voting. And Supervisor Jerry Holland expects total voter turnout to be just shy of 80%. But he still expects some lines on Election Day. "I think what you'll see is lines in the morning, when people are going to work. And then, for those who wait till the very end of the day, 5:30 and later, you're probably going to be standing in line an hour, up to two hours, in some locations."
If none of those options work for you, both Democrats and Republicans are offering to pick up your ballot and turn it in for you. All you have to do is call.
Democrats can call (904) 802-2278. Republicans can call (904) 398-1146.
