Today is the last day to cast a ballot for the presidential primaries and the city commission.

Despite a lawsuit filed yesterday by several activist groups and a UF organization for refusing to extend vote-by-mail ballots amid concerns from COVID-19, voting is still going on as planned right now.

Because of concerns from COVID-19 and a church fire, two of the county's precincts have been moved. The county is taking precautions by practicing social distancing between voters, cleaning work areas and washing hands regularly.

Here's everything you need to know about today's election:
