Tuesday, August 30, is Election Day


Tuesday is – finally! – Election Day. Several races important to Collier County voters will be decided: School Board members from Districts 2 and 4, County Commissioner for District 2, and Collier County’s Clerk of Courts and Property Appraiser. In addition, our representatives to the Florida House and Senate will be chosen in closed Republican primaries, although technically the winners will face write-in candidate challengers in November. See my post about the phony write-in loophole here. In addition, voters will decide on an amendment to Florida’s constitution regarding the taxation of solar energy systems.

A lot is at stake and I am anxiously awaiting the results.

Voter turnout for early voting has set a record for primary elections in at least 10 years, according to the Collier County Supervisor of Elections office. Hopefully the same will hold true for the election as a whole, and not just reflect a shift from Election Day to early and vote-by-mail voting.

We’ll know on Wednesday.

Thank you to all who have considered my research in the past 3–1/2 months since my first “Get Ready to Vote” post in May. Fingers crossed!
