Description Polling Hours: 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The vast majority of Florida lies in the EST zone.
Ten (10) counties of the western Panhandle, including Pensacola, are in the CST zone.

The Ballot [Link] includes Giuliani, Huckabee, Hunter, Keyes, McCain, Paul, Romney, Tancredo and Thompson. The candidates for this primary we're selected by a bi-partisan [Link] Presidential Candidate Selection Committee. It appears given the controversy of this primary that candidates we're not given the opportunity to withdraw.

According to the Green Papers, [Link] Florida has been sanctioned by the RNC regarding the selection of delegates.
----"On 8 November 2007, the RNC made a determination that Florida's Tuesday 29 January 2008 caucuses violate Republican Party Rule No. 16. The rule states that the process of selecting National Convention Delegates must not begin before Tuesday 5 February 2008. Florida is sanctioned 50% of their delegation hence, the number of delegates is decreased from 114 to 57."
