|SARASOTA, FL - Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner is suggesting Sarasota County voters consider voting by mail in the March 17, 2020 elections as an alternative to going to the polls on election day. “Voting by mail is a safe and convenient option for both election day voting and early voting and is available to all voters,” Turner said.
The March 17 elections include the presidential preference primary, Holiday Park Park and Recreation District election, and the Town of Longboat Key bond referendum.
