The election season begins Saturday with the start of the 10-early voting period leading up primary Tuesday Aug. 26.

Gulf County voters will have 10 days to be the early worm for the fall election season, with primary elections in both parties, local, regional and state, as well as universal primary and a non-partisan election.

Just bring your identification.

“All they really need is a photo and signature ID,” said Supervisor of Elections John Hanlon. “We are geared up.”

A universal primary occurs when all candidates running for a single office are from the same party. In such instances, there is no primary and all voters cast ballots on that race, which is decided in the Aug. 26 primary.

That is the case for the District 4 seat on the Board of County Commissioners.

Sandy Quinn is challenging one-term incumbent Commissioner Tan Smiley.
