Capital City Elected Officials Make Election Eve Voting Push

Tom Flanigan
(l. to r.) Tallahassee Mayor Pro-tem Dianne Williams-Cox, Leon County Commissioner Rick Minor and Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey make their get-out-the-vote pitch with the supervisor of elections mail ballot drop-off facility in the background.

Although unabashedly supporting the Biden/Harris ticket, the local commissioners insist they want to see every registered voter cast a ballot.

On the eve of the election, some of the Capital City's elected officials were urging all the area's registered voters to cast their ballots.

Tallahassee Mayor Pro-tem Dianne Williams Cox warned one method of voting is already closed to voters. "We can no longer wait to submit our ballots by mail. We must now walk it in."

Mayor John Dailey said the Leon Elections Office was reporting many mail ballots remained unused. "It's my understanding that we still have over 85,000 registered voters in Leon County who can still participate in this election. Please drop your ballot off at the facility right behind us."

That facility, Leon County Commissioner Rick Minor noted, a drive-up collection point, open on Election Day from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. "Bring it right here to the Supervisor of Elections Office on Apalachee Parkway."

Of course, there's always the old school way of voting in-person at your neighborhood precinct on Election Day.
