PRIMARY ELECTIONS AUGUST 18, 2020

The following is a UPDATED list of candidates running for office in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Since many of our members live off the Key or on the north end of Longboat Key, I’ve included both counties and have highlighted the Manatee County candidates for office in yellow that might be only running in Manatee County. Some candidates because of “Districting” may fall into both counties. Candidate names in red are linked to their Supervisor of Elections candidate profile page.

REMEMBER: ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
