The Primary Election on August 23 will not only help shape the November General Election, but there are also several contests that will be decided after the Primary Election Day.
Florida is a closed primary state. This means that only voters who are registered members of a political party may vote for their respective party’s candidate during a primary election. However, all voters – despite political party affiliation – are eligible to vote in nonpartisan contests such as school board and judicial races.
Visit www.CollierVotes.gov to register to vote, update your voter information and to learn more about important dates and deadlines for this year’s elections.
The leaders in 2022 will be our decision makers in our community and our voice in Tallahassee and in Washington D.C. In 2022, use your vote to voice what is important to you.
