Dozens line up as early voting begins across central Fla.


BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - Dozens of people lined up to cast their ballot at early voting sites across Central Florida on Saturday.

WFTV was there as voters waited in line outside early voting sites in Orange, Seminole, and Brevard Counties.

Some voters even decided to leave and vote at a later date after seeing the lines. Brevard County voter John Michael was surprised to see the large turnout for early voting.

"It's quite a long wait the line goes all the way to the end of the building," Michael said.

Many residents chose to wait in line Saturday, knowing that they would most likely face lines on November 6 as well.

"If it comes down to voting and having to stand in a line, I'll do it," one voter told WFTV.

By noon Saturday, Brevard County elections officials estimated about 2,000 people had already voted.

Seminole County officials said the wait to vote was between 30 minutes and an hour for most of the day Saturday.

The Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office said more than 4,000 residents have voted early so far.
