COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Collier County elections officials are predicting a big turnout this election, with 54% of registered voters already casting a ballot.
In fact, it could be the biggest turnout the county has seen.
Election workers spent time today setting up voting booths and getting everything in order for 7 a.m. tomorrow.
There are 60 voting locations throughout the county.
Deputy elections supervisor Tim Durham says about 100,000 votes have already been cast through early and absentee voting. He predicts that is about two-thirds of the number of people who will vote, and expects 50,000 at the polls on Tuesday.
He says they really pushed absentee voting this year, especially since the ballot is so long.
Durham calls Tuesday the "super bowl" for election workers. He says the library headquarters early voting site in Collier County had the third highest turnout in the state.
If you do plan to vote on election day, don't forget a photo ID, and know who you plan to vote for before you get to the polls to save time.
If you still have an absentee ballot, it must be received by 7 p.m. on Tuesday night.
