Just a reminder to go vote in the Florida primaries tomorrow

Voters in Florida and Arizona are set to cast ballots in congressional primaries, choosing party nominees for a host of open House seats and, in Florida, for districts that have been thoroughly scrambled by a court-ordered redistricting.

Voters trickled to polling places across Florida, some dodging rain, in a primary election that only had a few races on the ballot.

This year's primary election features primaries for U.S. Senate and several competitive races for Congress and the Legislature.

REMEMBER: You don't have to vote for every office on the ballot, but if you're registered with one of the recognized parties, you may only vote for that party's candidates.

For those who haven't voted early or by mail, polling places are open from 7 a.m.to 7 p.m. (find your precinct here if you live in Hillsborough and here if you live in Pinellas). The location that coincides with your registered address (on your voter information) is where you can cast your vote on election day.

If you have moved within the county or from another county, it is important to contact the elections office before going to vote. After months of town halls, attack ads and (not a little bit of) fundraising, the voters will decide which candidates will fill local offices and which partisan candidates will proceed to November's general election.

A polling place in Sanford was shut down briefly after police ordered a lockdown due to a shooting unrelated to Florida's primary election. A recent CNN poll showed McCain with a wide lead over Ward among likely Republican primary voters.

The Florida Division of Elections on Monday posted new totals that showed that almost 536,000 voters cast their ballots during the early voting period that wrapped up this weekend.

The Cochise County Elections Department has processed and counted 12,067 of the 30,172 Early Ballots that were sent to voters.

There is a lot at stake in this primary, Lars.

Across Florida, eyes are on the U.S. Senate seat now held by Marco Rubio. If I ever get stuck on an issue, I reference the Times, and vote the opposite of their recommendation. "For those working to influence elections, 36 percent is a significant size".

Arizonans will decide which candidates will advance to the general election on November 8.

What do I need to bring? .

Democrats also face their own internal challenges if they are to unite around sufficiently strong candidates to net to the four seats needed to take back control of the Senate. A candidate has to get a majority of votes cast according to a state formula.
