Pasco County Supervisor of Elections Announces Additional Early Voting Sites
Pasco County, FL -Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections, announces the addition of new Early Voting Sites in anticipation of increased voter turnout and the inevitable potential for long lines and wait times due to social distancing and CDC-recommended cleaning guidelines. The early voting period is Monday, October 19, 2020 through Saturday, October 31, 2020 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. including weekends. 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," said Supervisor Corley. "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. 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.
