City Council expected to approve Apopka Community Center as early voting site


The Apopka City Council is expected to approve an agreement with the Orange County Supervisor of Elections (SOE) to conduct an early voting site from Tuesday, March 1st, through Sunday, March 6th, between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. at its January 19th meeting at the Apopka Community Center.

According to the agenda packet, the SOE will charge $13,200 to administer the early voting site for the six days leading up to the March 8th election.

According to the packet, early voting is currently scheduled at the SOE office, located at 119 West Kaley Street, Orlando, Florida beginning on Monday, February 28th through Friday, March 4th between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

In the packet, it states:

"The City desires to offer an additional early voting location as a service to our citizens. The subject agreement, by and between the City of Apopka and the SOE provides the appropriate language for the SOE to utilize the Apopka Community Center as the secondary early voting location in order to conduct early voting at the above-referenced location beginning on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, through Sunday, March 6, 2022, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m."

The issue was discussed at the previous City Council meeting on January 5th meeting.

Apopka residents wishing to vote in the 2022 election must be registered by February 7th at 5 pm. 

Election day is Tuesday, March 8th from 7 am to 7 pm.

There will be no runoffs (which occur when the leading candidate does not receive 50%-plus-one of the votes in the general election) because there are only two candidates in each contested seat.

There are three elections on the ballot in the 2022 Apopka elections: City Commission (Seat #2) Incumbent Diane Velazquez faces challenger Wes Dumey, (Seat #4) Eric Mock faces Nick Nesta, and the mayoral election pits incumbent Mayor Bryan Nelson facing Commissioner Kyle Becker.
