TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Voting numbers show that more Floridians are heading to the polls early than ever before.

New numbers from the state Division of Elections show more than 1.25 million people have already cast their ballot. That's more voters than the entire 2014 Primary.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine stopped by an early voting location in Tallahassee on Wednesday.

He says the fact that so many Floridians now vote ahead of Election Day makes it even more important to focus campaign resources in the final week before the primary.
