At least five races will be decided during today’s primary, including the Osceola County Clerk of Courts, Kissimmee’s State House representative, county tax collector and two school board seats.
Other key races like Osceola Sheriff, Kissimmee Mayor and County Commission District 1 will narrow down a large pool of political hopefuls ahead of November.
The Supervisor of Elections in Osceola County is pushing important safety procedures to protect voters who still need to cast a ballot on Election Day. While we were at the Supervisor of Elections Office today, we saw voter after voter dropping off their mail-in ballot at the office. You have up to 7pm to do that today, and you can ONLY drop it off at the Supervisor of Elections Office today… not at one of the precincts.
Hand sanitizer, masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment will be on hand at all polling sites this year, and Election workers are required to wear face masks. Voters without face coverings won’t be turned away but election officials are still encouraging people to mask up when they come to vote. Free masks will also be available to voters at the polls.
So, if you want your voice to be heard, and you want to be a part of making a positive difference in Osceola County… get out and vote today! Polls are open from 7am-7pm. Remember, unlike in early voting, on Election Day you can only vote in your home precinct.
If you don’t know where that is, call 407-742-6000 or visit www.voteosceola.com to check your voter status. According to the Supervisor of Elections Office, you must be in line by 7pm to be allowed to vote. They’re doing everything they can to make voting simple, safe, and secure… but you need to do your part and get to your precinct before 7 pm if you’re going to make a Positive Difference in Osceola County!
