Early voting will now be allowed at the University of North Florida and Edward Waters College as a prelude to the November general election, according to a news release by the Duval County Supervisor of Elections on Sept. 17.

With the addition of these two early voting sites, Duval County will have a total of 20 early voting sites that will be open to all eligible registered Duval County voters.

Duval County’s Supervisor of Elections Mike Hogan, was presented with the idea to open early voting sites on college campuses, after a federal judge ruled on July 24, that the sites can be used.

After giving it thought and reviewing his current budget, Hogan’s office said the two college campuses can be used as early voting sites.

Early voting will start on Oct. 22 and end on Nov. 4. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at all early voting sites with the exception of 105 East Monroe Street, which is in downtown Jacksonville.
