Early voting numbers traditionally spike on weekends, but not this year in Palm Beach County’s early voting for the Aug. 30 election.
Numbers for Saturday and Sunday actually were lower than they’d been in the first five days of this year’s 13-day event, according to the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections.
They did bring the total through Sunday night to 11,109, according to the election’s office web site. It said 1,373 voted Saturday and 1,116 Sunday, compared to an average daily total of 1,724 for the previous five days, Aug. 15-19.
The average for the first seven days is 1,587. Extrapolating that out to the full 13 days would suggest a total of 20,631. That’s a little more than a third of the 54,092 who took part in early voting in nine in March. That election included the presidential primary.
