The Glenwood Community Center in Panama City is among eight early voting sites in the August 2022 primary elections in Bay County.

Voters in Bay County can cast a primary ballot at any local polling site over the next 11 days.

Early voting begins Wednesday and runs through Saturday, Aug. 20. Primary Election Day is Tuesday, Aug. 23. Voters may cast a ballot at any of the county's eight polling sites between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

All voters, regardless of party, have choices on their primary ballots. For instance, the Republican Party primary for House District 6, is open to all voters and will determine who represents the county in the statehouse. That race is known as a "universal primary" because the only candidates running are from the same party.
