Friday’s total of 2,963 brought the grand total as of Friday evening to 22,190. That already is more than the 15,785 who voted in the eight-day early-voting vent in the August 2012 primary, supervisor Susan Bucher said Thursday.

Wednesday was the last day to request a mail-in ballot be mailed to you, although voters can pick up ballots in person up to Election Day. For your vote to count, your signed ballot must be received by 7 p.m. Tuesday, Election Day, at the main office, or by 5 p.m. Tuesday at branch offices.

To see a sample ballot, or for more information, contact the elections office at 561-656-6200 or visit ww.pbcelections.org.
