Villane told us 63% of voters who participated in the 2016 Presidential election voted early and 37% showed up on election day.
The Supervisor of Elections said most people vote early because it’s convenient and this year they have 13 days of early voting and voters can go to any of the four voting locations throughout Santa Rosa County area.
