BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartory-Link has one of the most difficult jobs in government right now — but so far, early voting continues without problems or controversy.

She issued this statement just before 6 p.m. Friday which includes links and information for those confused by current voting rules, regulations, and locations.

OFFICIAL INFORMATION: To date, over 150,000 voters have returned mail ballots and over 34,000 voters have voted early. Currently more than 18% of registered voters in Palm Beach County have already voted in this election.

This week concluded the first week of Early Voting. Voters can vote early today through November 6th. There are 21 Early Voting locations open every day from 7 am – 7 pm.

To date, over 11,000 voters have booked an appointment to vote early. The appointment program is optional for voters that want to skip the line and vote at a time and location that is convenient for them.

Vote-by-Mail ballots must be received by 7 pm on Election Day. The Supervisor of Elections Main Office will be open until 7 pm on Election Day and other branch offices will be open until 5 pm. Please visit www.VotePalmBeach.gov for more information. While on the website, voters are encouraged to sign up to track their Vote-by-Mail ballot using BallotTrax.

 Voters are encouraged to return their mail ballot as soon as possible. As ballots are returned, a signature review process is completed to ensure the integrity of the election. If a ballot has a signature issue, the voter will be contacted by the Supervisor of Elections Office. Returning a ballot at the last minute reduces the amount of time available to cure signature issues.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th and the polls will be open from 7 am – 7 pm. Due to redistricting, many polling locations have changed. Voters are encouraged to check their voter ID card or visit www.VotePalmBeach.gov to review their Election Day polling location.

During this election, the Supervisor of Elections Office is here to serve. Voters can contact the office anytime at www.VotePalmBeach.gov or by calling 561.656.6200.
