Political season in Levy ends Tuesday

-A A +A

Early voting off to good start

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

The speeches and sign waving should all end Tuesday — at least for Levy County voters and local candidates. But a large number of folks are being heard early. 

As of Tuesday morning, Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell said 1,333 voters had taken advantage of voting early. 

“The canvassing board meets tomorrow morning (Wednesday) and they will open 3,394 absentee ballots that have been returned.“ Asbell said her office sent out about 5,500 absentee ballots. 

“This is the highest it's been so far,” Asbell said of the early and absentee voting. 

The county has 25,110 registered voters, with Democrats holding a slight lead, 10,540 over Republicans who have 10,322 voters. There are 4,248 voters registered as Independents, other party affiliations  and no party affiliation. 

This will be Asbell's last election as she is retiring from office. Her replacement, Deputy Supervisor Tammy Jones won election in the Republican primary Aug. 14 against Brooke Ward. No Democrat qualified for the office.
