Early voting runs through next Thursday. By 3:45 p.m., Denton County's elections administrator said 18,988 residents had voted, up from 9,582 in 2014. Voting locations in the Keys will be open from 8:30 a.m.to 5 p.m.

"Yesterday, the first day, I came by- I was gonna squeeze in, and I was shocked there was a line all the way down the block", Ingram said. Penney said he also voted for a ballot measure legalizing casinos in four Arkansas counties. "Voting and elections are key to democracy". Across the state, officials said the process went smoothly.

The FIU campus underperformed when it last had an early-voting site in 2014, and the Gimenez administration initially resisted expanding its early-voting plan after the July court decision in Tallahassee. Polls are open from 7 a.m.to 7 p.m.
