Real-time updates of total ballots cast can be viewed on the Collier County Elections website
Collier County, FL-October 22, 2012: The Collier County Supervisor of Elections recently introduced an updated feature at www.CollierVotes.com allowing website visitors to track real-time voter turnout data for the 2012 General Election, starting with absentee ballot returns. A variety of graphs and charts are available that display total ballots cast in the county (not votes counted). This information is transaction-based and will continue to be updated throughout the election cycle with voter check-in totals.
The voter turnout feature offers five different tracking methods:
- Summary of ballots cast by type: mail, early voting, Election Day, and provisionally
- Ballots cast by type and by party
- Percentage of ballot types cast
- Ballots cast by date
- Ballots cast by precinct and by type
"Our office is pleased to once again offer the public real-time voter turnout information for the upcoming election," said Jennifer Edwards, Supervisor of Elections. "We believe that updating this feature to include absentee ballots and multiple tracking methods will be even more helpful for the citizens of Collier County."
To date, approximately 22,000 mail/absentee ballots have been cast.
The first preliminary election results will be posted at www.CollierVotes.com on Election night, November 6th, at approximately 7:30 p.m. The initial report will include both early voting and absentee votes. All subsequent reports will include Election Day precinct results. A link to the "Florida Election Watch" will also be provided to follow statewide results.
