The Central Florida Post is committed to help you exercise your right and your civic duty to vote.
By Sean D. Hartman
It is no secret that the Central Florida Post is known for being a rabble-rousing paper, and rousing the rabbles has a tendency of breeding sensationalist controversy.
Yet despite the rumors and lies spread about this paper and its reporters, the Central Florida Post has been and continues to be a paper seeking to hold both sides of the aisle accountable and urging individuals to make up their own minds and think for themselves.
That is why everyone at the Central Florida Post strongly urges all of our readers and all of our enemies to vote in the upcoming primaries.
Whether you are a far-right Nazi bigot or a far-left Antifa socialist, your voice matters, and the Central Florida Post is committed to help you exercise your right and your civic duty to vote.

If you have an absentee ballot, they must be returned to your Division of Elections Office no later than 7 P.M. on election day. If you choose to vote on-site, it is asked that you bring your absentee ballot to ensure fair voting practices.
On Election Day, your voting location will be determined by your voter identification. Each address lies within individual precincts, with each precinct having a localized polling location. If voting on Election Day, it is imperative that you go to the voting location on your voter identification. You can find your voter registration for Orange County, in Seminole County, and in Osceola County.
When voting, it is important to educate yourself on all the candidates, and vote based on your values. The Central Florida Post asks that you think for yourself, research the issues, and vote according to your values and conscience.
