Don’t Complain if you Don’t Vote, Early Voting Underway

HERNANDO – If you weren’t already aware, early voting is underway in Hernando County and as they say “You can’t complain if you don’t vote.”  But so many believe that their vote really doesn’t count, which leads to low voter turnout and ultimately, candidates elected, and laws passed that you might not agree with.

For this year’s primary there are candidates on the ballot for U.S. Senate, Republican candidates for District 11 Congressional seat, Hernando County Commissioners for District 1, and District 5, School Board members, and even a constitutional amendment on solar energy.

Amendment 4 would exempt solar panels and other renewable energy equipment from the real property tax and the tangible property tax, according to Floridians for Solar Choice.  If passed, the policy would lower the cost of solar, increase clean energy jobs, and greatly expand solar development across the state.

Here are some interesting facts: Hernando County has 128,170 registered voters; 42,723 Democrats, 51,970 Republicans, and 33,477 other affiliations, according to www.hernandovotes.com.  As of August 19th the Supervisor of Elections is reporting that they’ve received 12,974 mail-in ballots; 4,993 Democrats, 6,212 Republicans, and 1,769 other affiliations.

Early voting started on Saturday August 20th and runs through this Saturday August 27th.

There are four locations throughout Hernando County that are open between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. daily.
