COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- The Collier elections office was in full swing preparing for when early voting begins next week.
Collier county supervisor of elections, Jennifer Edwards, met with early voting poll workers Thursday afternoon.
Edwards thanking them in advance for all their help.
"Every presidential election is a little more exciting and busy," said Edwards, who has served as supervisor since 2000.
Edwards's office was busy. Their warehouse was filled with rows upon rows of equipment waiting to be rolled out for early voting, but early voting prep is just one aspect.
The elections office processed over six thousand mail in ballots Thursday afternoon. The headlines involving Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are just adding to those totals.
"Any news about the election, brings more attention of course to it. It reminds our voters to get out and vote or to register to vote," said Edwards.
Edwards making one thing clear. Once your vote is cast, it is in.
"Once you have voted, you have voted. Once we have received it, it's received and there's no do overs."
