More than 21,000 Citrus County voters have cast ballots so far today, putting the updated voter turnout at 71 percent with a few hours remaining before polls close. That percentage includes early votes and absentee. 

Gill had expected 27,000 to 30,000 votes cast today by the time polls close at 7 p.m.,

Many precincts reported lines when polls opened at 7 a.m. While voting is steady, Gill said she doesn't expect lines at precincts the rest of the day. Anyone in line at 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

If you aren’t sure where to vote, call the elections office at 352-341-6740. Make sure to show up at the polls with photo identification.
