Tuesday is final chance to register for November election

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Tuesday is the final day to register to vote ahead of the November election.  Many Supervisor of Elections offices will have extended hours to help accommodate the last minute rush.

"We see this always in a Presidential cycle," explained Jerry Holland, Supervisor of Elections for Duval County.    "We'll probably have between 30 and 40,000 people that will have registered in the last 30 or 40 days and so, it's exciting to see this many people get involved in it."

Extended Hours:

Duval County-open until 7:30 p.m.

St. Johns County-open until 7:00 p.m.

Clay County-open until 5:00 p.m.

According to Holland, voters do not need to bring identification to register, but they will need a photo I.D. on Election Day.  As of Monday, the number of voters registered reflected a more conservative population than in the 2008 election cycle.

New ER to hold open house, provide emergency care

JULINGTON CREEK, Fla. - A brand new free-standing emergency room will hold an open house Saturday to introduce their services to the public.

The Emergency Care Center is located off Race Track Road.  The facility is owned and operated by Memorial Hospital.  President and CEO Jim O'Loughlin said the hospital wants to provide emergency care to people in a growing area.  

"During an emergency condition, you know, people are worried, they're nervous," explained O'Loughlin.  "The closest facility oftentimes is more comforting and there can be quite a bit of traffic between here and downtown Jacksonville, so it's nice to know there's something close by for people to be able to access."  

Kim Gabbamonte lives just over a mile from the new ER and said that knowing that type of care is nearby will give her family some piece of mind.
