Pasco Adds Early Voting Sites
Pasco’s early voting period is Oct. 19 through Oct. 31. Early polling places will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. including weekends. The last day to register to vote in the presidential election is Oct. 5.
PASCO COUNTY – -Supervisor of Elections Brian E. Corley hasa announced his office will add new early voting sites for the upcoming presidential election.
The decision to add early voting sites is in anticipation of increased voter turnout and the inevitable potential for long lines and wait times because of social distancing and CDC-recommended cleaning guidelines.
The early voting period is Oct. 19 through Oct. 31. Polls will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. including weekends. Election Day is Nov. 3.
A longer voting period and a total of 14 locations marks a new high for Pasco County.
“In partnership with Pasco County administration, we have secured additional sites to include Veterans Memorial Park Gymnasium, J. Ben Harrill Recreation Complex Gymnasium, Land O’ Lakes Recreation Complex Gymnasium and Wiregrass Ranch Sports Campus,” Corley said. “The response from Dan Biles, county administrator, was without hesitation and completely in the spirit of being on the same team.”
The addition of county sports complexes and gymnasiums will give Pasco voters more options for casting their ballot in-person, and in terms of size will accommodate more voters while still social distancing, officials said.
The Land O’ Lakes Recreation Complex Gymnasium will replace the Land O’ Lakes Library, a well attended early voting site which is located right next door to the recreation complex.
To register to vote or change your address, or to ask for a mail ballot, or get a list of all early voting locations, addresses and wait times go to PascoVotes.gov. The last day to register to vote in the presidential election is Oct. 5. Voters must present a photo and signature ID when early voting or vote a provisional ballot.
