A slow stream of voters is drifting into precincts around Hernando County as Election Day continues in Hernando County.
Polls are open in until 7 p.m.
Gene and Joann Huber of Spring Hill said they don’t even have to think about whether they will vote at an election. It’s automatic.
“I feel it’s our patriotic duty,” Gene Huber said.
Huber said his passion for voting were formed from his years in the U.S. Navy and when he was on the police force.
Spring Hill resident Dolores DeMarco said the media did a good job of getting the point out that people should get out and vote.
“They’ve been saying it, saying it and saying it,” she said. “So I figured it’s got to be my civic duty.”
DeMarco said it’s unfortunate that primaries have such low turnouts but it could be that people are still away for the summer or busy with school opening.
“There could be a lot of reasons for it,” she said.
