COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- Less than half of registered Republicans in Collier County voted in Tuesday's Special Election. A majority of those people chose to vote absentee, mailing in ballots, or they visted their precinct early. The Elections Office worked quickly and just before 9pm all 100% of the votes were reported. The Collier County Supervisor of Elections told WINK News, Tuesday's election went well and they're happy with the turn out.
"We always like to have more turn out, but we're pleased. We've talked about this within the office the last few weeks and have nothing really to compare this to, this is a special primary election," said Edwards.
Edwards said her office is now looking forward to the Special General Election in June. She has a friendly reminder for voters, not everyone can vote in that election, like Tuesday's election it's only for those in Congressional District 19.
