Early Voting Begins in Florida

No superstorm to stop them, voters in the battleground state of Florida showed up at the polls on Saturday as early voting kicked off for the Sunshine State. Early voting begins four days earlier this year than in 2008—with Sunday in particular expected to have high turnout, as many black churches across the state have organized “souls to the polls” events to get voters out. Early voting will end next Saturday, after state lawmakers eliminated early voting on the last Sunday before the election. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney campaigned with Florida Gov. Marco Rubio on Saturday, while a Tampa Bay Times poll of political analysts said Romney is likely to the win the state’s 29 electoral-college votes.
