The Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce sponsored the "Politics in the Park" meet-and-greet and forum to give residents of Hernando County the opportunity to meet the 2014 candidates running for local, state and federal offices. Those in attendance were also able to participate in voter registration and a straw poll administered by the Hernando County Supervisor of Elections Office. The primary elections are on Aug. 26.
