Democratic candidate Charlie Crist kicks off the first full weekend of early voting on Saturday with campaign stops in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach County, Jacksonville and Orlando.

Crist’s tour begins with two stops in Miami beginning at 9:00 a.m., and concludes with a rally in Orlando that evening.

On the way, the former governor will make stops in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach County.

Additional details on locations and events will be available Friday afternoon.

Recent polls show both Gov. Rick Scott and Crist deadlocked, with only about 10  days left until Nov. 4.

Both candidates are making their way throughout South Florida. On Wednesday, Scott began his bus tour in Miami-Dade County, where Crist campaigned on Thursday. Scott expects to return on Friday, as will Crist on Saturday.

At this point, the message is clear: get out and vote.
