A man in East Tampa almost gave up before voting this morning after being told he wasn’t on the rolls; after more than an hour, Virgil Campbell was able to update his address and vote at the Fair Oaks Park Community Center in East Tampa.

Laila Abdelaziz works with the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Florida. She’s also a board member at WMNF. Today she’s part of a voter protection effort in Hillsborough County.

The voter protection hotline is 813-229-4286.

The Hillsborough Supervisor of Elections, Craig Latimer, says that as of noon today, voting was robust.
