SARASOTA, FL - Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner is reminding registered voters that early voting for the March 17 presidential preference primary, Holiday Park Park and Recreation District election and Town of Longboat bond referendum will end on Saturday, March 14.

Turner said eligible voters may cast their ballots during the early voting period between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily at any of the five locations listed here:
