Thousands Of Floridians Have Already Voted In General Election
TALLAHASSEE - Many Floridians have already taken the opportunity to vote 27 days before the election.
As of Wednesday morning, more than 76,000 ballots have been cast.
The campaigns for republican Mitt Romney and President Obama are scrambling to reach out to two million other voters who have requested absentee ballots.
Florida's new voting laws have shortened the in-person early voting period from 14 to eight days, so with this election there's an even greater incentive to ask supporters to vote by absentee ballot.
Florida's 29 electoral votes are more than 10 percent of the 270 needed to win the presidency, the most of any state that's considered a toss-up.
