Florida Preps for Primary Elections

The Florida Primary takes place in a little more than a month and, despite concerns about Russian hacking, Secretary of State Ken Detzner says he's convinced the system is safe.

"Florida had a very successful election," he said. "We were not breached. The Florida voter registration database was and is secure  for this election, and we should all be confident we're gonna have a good election."

Detzner says that doesn't mean he is not taking the threat of hacking seriously. 

He is, and he says it's something he thinks about and prepares for "every day;" noting that's the best way to get ready for an election with the goal of making sure all is secure.

Absentee ballots are now being sent to more than 2 million Floridians who plan to vote by mail. 

If you plan to show up in person, you can wait till primary day on August 28 or take advantage of early voting from August 18 through August 25.
