Rep. Tracie Davis, D-Jacksonville, once ran against Mike Hogan for Duval Elections Supervisor. While Hogan won, the two are at odds over Davis’ bill offering voters an additional option for early voting.

Davis is Duval’s former Deputy Supervisor of Elections and worked for the office in varying roles for 14 years. Her bill would allow voters to drop off mail-in ballots at any early voting site in their county. Currently, Duval voters can only mail them in or take them to the elections office downtown.

Duval County voters hoping to get an advance look at their ballots might be going into the booth blind this week after the Elections Supervisor’s Office failed to mail out sample ballots on time.

Supervisor Mike Hogan told our partners News4Jax Monday the ballots were delayed because of the hurricane.

But Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, said that the delay had “nothing to do with the hurricane” and that Hogan “should own up to the mistake.”
