Early voting begins today for Collier Republicans, despite King holiday
Even though Monday is the federal holiday honoring the life the work of Martin Luther King, Jr., early voting begins today in Collier County in the Florida Presidential Preference Primary.
The Immokalee Public Library will be open - enough, at least, for early voting from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The early voting poll will be open each Monday through Saturday until January 28. The primary date is January 31.
Voters in Collier County get a five-day jump on early voting because Collier is one of five Florida counties still under the jurisdicition of the U.S. Department of Justice due to past voting discrimination.
