Even though Election Day is not until November 6, a whopping 41 percent of Nassau County’s 66,800 active registered voters have already cast ballots: over 17,000 in Early Voting and more than 10,000 mail ballots.
How does Nassau County’s current voter turnout (41%) compare to neighboring Duval County and state averages? 34.91% of Duval County voters have cast their ballots compared to a 36.2% statewide average.
Early voting ended on November 3 at 6:00 p.m. for the 2018 General Election cycle. But mail ballots are still being received in the Nassau County Supervisor of Elections Office.
If you are registered but have not yet voted, mark your calendar for November 6, find your polling place on the Elections Office website if you don’t already know it, and VOTE.
