FORT MYERS, Fla. — Since Oct. 24 when early voting began, a contingency plan was activated across Lee County, caused by the wrath of Hurricane Ian.

Some regular polling places are not accessible due to damage to buildings, roads, or other infrastructure. So to ensure people can cast their ballots, 13 polling locations open in Lee County on Election Day, Nov. 8.

There are long lines including in Cape Coral where people are waiting just under two hours to vote.

Anyone, regardless of assigned voting district, will be able to vote at these designated sites:

In addition, Lee County approved the use of the Louise Du Pont Crowninshield Community House (240 Banyan St, Boca Grande) as a polling location for Tuesday.

Election Day hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
