Early voting gearing up
Early voting for the 2012 Republican Presidential primary and the City of Gainesville elections begins tomorrow at three Gainesville locations. Alachua county Supervisor of Elections Pam Carpenter says early elections make voting less of a chore.
Carpenter says in order to vote in the primary election you must be a registered Republican voter in Alachua County and bring picture ID to the polls. Early voting is also open for two city commission seats. For additional information on early voting visit the Supervisor’s website.
