With the General Election over, the Supervisor of Elections is closing its satellite office in Riverview.
Like the General Election, the Supervisor of Elections satellite office in Riverview is now history. The satellite office at 10439 Gibsonton Dr., Riverview, along with another satellite office in the Citrus Park area, has closed its door effective Nov. 21.

The satellite office is slated to open in the fall in the U.S. 301 and Big Bend Road area.
Trying to avoid a repeat of long lines at polling places, county elections officials plan to open two new satellite offices in Riverview and Northwest Hillsborough this fall. “We want to take some of the pressure off early voting sites, like [the] Bloomingdale and Jimmy Keel” library branches, said Craig Latimer, chief of staff for the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections.

Residents will also be able to register to vote at the offices. The satellite offices are slated to open in October or November, in the U.S. 301 and Big Bend Road area and in the …
