Will Flagler County vote for Donald Trump on March 15? There is one poll that would indicate yes, and that’s the Flagler Federated Republican Women’s survey, which showed that of about 200 votes cast, Trump received double the votes of Senator Marco Rubio. The survey was conducted over three months — from December to February — and included some candidates who have since dropped out of the race.

Meanwhile, a fresh poll was released Monday, March 7, by Monmouth University, showing that Trump’s lead is 8% statewide.

Early voting in Flagler County is underway through Saturday, March 12, for Florida's March 15 Presidential Preference Primary. For Bunnell residents, there is also a vote for two City Commission seats. The hours for early voting are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., including weekends, and votes can be cast at one of three locations:


1. Flagler County Supervisor of Elections Office

1769 E. Moody Boulevard

Building 2, Suite 101

Bunnell, FL 32110


2. Flagler County Public Library

2500 Palm Coast Parkway NW

Palm Coast, FL 32137


3. Palm Coast Community Center

305 Palm Coast Parkway NE

Palm Coast, FL 32137


Elections Supervisor Kaiti Lenhart said on WNZF’s “Free For All Friday” on March 4 that about 4,200 people had cast absentee ballots, which is on pace for a new record.

In a press release, she added: “The Elections Office has received many new voter registrations and party affiliation changes during the past few months, as voters are preparing for this very important election. I expect a great turnout and higher numbers than the 2012 Presidential Preference Primary Election.”

Currently, there are 75,907 registered voters in Flagler County. Of those, 28,986 are Republication, and 24,522 are Democrats. Not far behind the two major parties are those with no party affiliation, at 20,527. Minor parties account for 1,872 registered voters.
