Lake County Supervisor of Elections Announces Early Voting Dates, Times, and Locations for the November 3rd General Election

Tavares, FL - Lake County Supervisor of Elections, Alan Hays, announces that Early Voting for the November 3rd General Election will be held October 19th – October 31st. Sites will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.

Two new Early Voting sites have been added this year:
1. Clermont Arts and Recreation Center at 3700 S. US Highway 27 in Clermont.
2. In Sorrento at 24019 SR 46 (formerly the Sorrento Hardware Store).

“To make it convenient for Lake County voters, we have expanded our Early Voting sites to twelve different locations throughout the county,” Hays shared. “We believe there will be a high turnout at the polls. Utilizing the flexibility of Early Voting will help decrease wait times on Election Day,” Hays further commented. During Early Voting, voters may choose any one of the different locations to cast their ballot, instead of waiting until Election Day to vote at their assigned precinct. For a listing of all Early Voting locations, click the Early Voting tab on the homepage at Voters will be able to click on the site and get detailed directions to the Early Voting location.

Secure drop boxes will be available at each Early Voting site for those voters wishing to deposit their completed vote-by-mail ballots instead of returning them by USPS.

Sample ballots will be mailed to all voters who have not opted to vote by mail. Voters can mark up their sample ballot and bring it with them to the polls. They can then easily transfer their selections to their actual ballot. “If voters are already prepared with their selections, it will help minimize the amount of time spent in the privacy booth and therefore improve wait times,” Hays stated. Sample ballots are also available at Voters can simply click on the red banner at the top of the homepage and follow the prompts to view their customized sample ballot.
