Steve Weinberg had his mind made up so he decided not to wait. He headed to the polls Monday, one of more than 1,200 Hillsborough County voters to get a head start in the Republican presidential primary.

Early voting has began in Hillsborough for the Jan. 31 Republican presidential preference primary, ahead of most of the rest of the state.
