Collier County, FL – Two new features were added to the Supervisor of Elections Office website, www.CollierVotes.com, today with the start of Early Voting in Collier County.
The first new feature is a Daily Early Voting Turnout graph that appears on the homepage, similar to the sample graphic, that indicates the total number of voters who have checked in at all seven sites to vote early – not the total number ballots cast. The graph is being updated every 15 minutes for the remainder of Early Voting.
The second feature allows potential Early Voters to check wait times at all seven Early Voting sites. It also lists all Early Voting locations, addresses, times and days the polls are open and a clickable icon that displays a printable map of all seven Early Voting sites. This feature is accessible by clicking the link labeled ‘Early Voting Wait Times’ located above the graph on the homepage of our website. This feature is also available on our mobile site by clicking the link labeled ‘Early Voting Sites.’ Early Voting wait times are being updated frequently throughout the day.
Any registered voter may vote during Early Voting at any one of the seven Early Voting sites. Early Voting is offered Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and ends on Saturday, August 11th. Voters are reminded to bring along a photo and signature ID to Early Voting. Accepted photo IDs include: a current Florida driver license, DHSMV issue Florida ID, U.S. Passport, debit or credit card, military ID, student ID, retirement center ID, neighborhood association ID or public assistance ID. If the photo ID does not include the voter’s signature, the voter will be required to provide an additional form of identification with their signature. Voters without the proper ID will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot.
