What to take to the polls


In order to vote at the polls during early voting or on Election Day, you must show a photo and signature identification. Acceptable forms of photo identification include a Florida driver license; a Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles; a United States passport; a debit or credit card; a military identification; a student identification; a retirement center identification; a neighborhood association identification; or a public assistance identification.

If your photo identification does not contain your signature, you will be required to show an additional form of identification that provides your signature.

Once your identity has been established, you will be asked to sign the precinct register or electronic device, and then you will be allowed to vote. If you need assistance in marking your ballot, inform the poll worker.

If you make a mistake when voting on a paper ballot, ask for a replacement. You may receive up to two replacements, or a total of three ballots.

Polls will be open on Election Day, Nov. 8, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. local time. Contact your Supervisor of Elections for early voting hours, which may vary between early voting sites.

To determine your polling place, check your voter information card or contact your Supervisor of Elections. You may also find your polling place on http://dos.myflorida.com/elections, through the online voter lookup, or on your Supervisor of Elections’ website.
