Collier County sees smooth election day, record-breaking turnout

Published: Updated:

The polls in Collier County had a steady stream of voters all day Tuesday. We visited several locations across the county, and turnout so far has surpassed 88%.

A squad of volunteers called “Election Protection” has been on guard at once precinct –making sure everyone gets along.

The chairwoman of the Collier County Democratic Party said Immokalee polling locations were busier than in years past.

And some people who waited until Election Day to vote, liked what they saw once they got there. Short lines, if any.

The last time Collier County saw a turn out this big was in 2016 with 86%.
