Early voting begins Monday in more than one-third of Florida counties for the statewide Aug. 30 primary. A total of 24 counties will open early voting centers, with the remaining counties doing so later this week, many of them on Saturday.

By law, every county must offer early voting for at least eight days, from Aug. 20-27. Counties can add six more days if they want, from Aug. 15-19 and on Aug. 28, the Sunday before the primary.

Among the state's five most populous counties, the only one not providing early voting on Monday is Broward.

The first wave of early voting counties includes Baker, Bradford, Calhoun, Charlotte, Desoto, Duval, Flagler, Gadsden, Hendry, Hillsborough, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lake, Levy, Liberty, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange, Palm Beach, Santa Rosa, Taylor and Washington.
