Early voting for general election to kick off in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Early voting is about to get under way in Florida.

More than 30 counties start early voting Monday, including several large counties such as Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange and Palm Beach. Other counties start in the coming week.

Early voting will also be available for the first time on several college campuses. The administration of Gov. Rick Scott contended campus buildings could not be used for early voting, but that decision was challenged in federal court.

Election Day is Nov. 6.

Florida voters will be choosing a new governor between Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis. Outgoing Gov. Rick Scott is challenging U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson in a race for U.S. Senate that could determine control of the U.S. Senate. Voters will also be asked to weigh on several proposed constitutional amendments.
