Hernando County Supervisor of Elections office relocates voting equipment

Brooksville Hernando County Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson loads signs into the back of a van in Brooksville. The supervisor and her staff began a three-day process of relocating voting equipment Monday.

The Supervisor of Elections Office received assistance from Century 21 Real Estate agent Marilyn Pearson-Adams, who provided a moving truck, and from Hernando County jail inmates, who provided labor authorized by the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office. “This will help create efficiency,” Anderson said about the equipment relocation. The next primary election will be Aug. 26 and the general election will be on Nov. 4.
