Southwest Florida is preparing for primary day, and if you want to join your neighbors using early voting, better hurry.

Early voting ends Saturday and 11 locations throughout the county will be open to facilitate early voting.

Collier County voters wanting to beat lines on Election Day can vote from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Trish Robertson, a public relations officer for the Collier County supervisor of elections shared some thoughts. Robertson is encouraging Collier County voters to get out early, and a warning, if you planned on voting by mail.

“At this point don’t put your ballot, your vote by mail ballot in the mail,” Robertson said. “If you’re going to vote your vote by mail ballot bring it into either our office or drop it off at one of the early voting locations tomorrow.”

Voting early means you can go to any of the 11 locations on Saturday.

If you wait until Election Day, you’ll have to vote at your precinct to get everyone in and out come Tuesday election officials are asking for your help.

“Download your sample ballot from our website or you were mailed one,” Robertson said. “Fill it out how the way you want to fill it out and then bring that with you to the polls so that you can easily transfer your information from your sample ballot onto your real ballot and that will save some time when you’re in the voting booth help us avoid lines.”

Get your vote in and get your sticker to prove it.

“Have you seen our sticker it’s a brand new sticker it was created by one of our students here at East Naples middle school so I mean yeah it’s all about the sticker it’s about your civic pride it’s about having your voice it’s about getting out there and using your right to vote,” Robertson said.

All Collier County voters will weigh in on the school board and judges’ race. And again, early voting starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m.
