Voting line at the Courthouse on Parker Street at 6:57 am. At that point, there were about 50 people. When I left at 7:30 am there were about 100 in line.
Lakeland readers interested in early voting can go to 930 Parker Street anytime from now until 7 pm today.
Those interested in documenting their experience, and I saw one video camera, should be aware of pertinent Florida law.
Section 102.031(5) prohibits “photography . . . in the polling room.” The “polling room” means “the actual room in which ballots are cast on election day and during early voting.”
If lines gather inside the polling place building but outside the polling room itself, or if poll workers check in voters outside the polling room, then you may be able to use a camera in these locations, but caution is advised. — Citizen Media Law Project
