Final ballots being cast in early-voting period


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Early voting is wrapping up across the state this weekend in advance of next week's primary election.

Some counties' polls have a last day of early voting on Saturday. Others remain open on Sunday.

Thousands around the state have cast their ballots during the early-voting period.

The most high-profile race is the Democratic gubernatorial primary, in which former Gov. Charlie Crist is considered the favorite over former state Sen. Nan Rich.

Gov. Rick Scott is also facing a couple of relatively unknown challengers in the Republican primary.
