    I assume this will include the CMP ballot initiative. I wonder if city residents will be able to vote on the initiative if they go to one of the other two locations for early voting. Have you heard anything about this?


  2. The CMP question will appear on the ballot of any City of Pensacola resident who is a registered voter. This applies to any method a voter chooses to cast a ballot — early, absentee, or at the precinct on Election Day. So a City voter may go to any of the 3 early voting locations to cast their ballot, which will included the CMP question.

    Thanks David.

  4. WanderingHoo Says:

    Thanks David. I figured so, but glad to see that will be the case. I hope the turnout keeps you and your staff busy.


  5. No problem. I’d love nothing more than to be swamped due to high voter turnout throughout the county.
