Election officials advise to not wait until the last minute.
“Don’t wait until Tuesday night at 6 p.m. to drop off. Law states the ballots need to be in our possession by 7 p.m.,” said Robert Rodriguez, Asst. Deputy Supervisor of Elections, Government Affairs & Media Relations, Miami-Dade County Elections Department.
That’s a notable difference from in-person voting, where you can be in line at 7 p.m. and still allowed to vote.
Rodriguez advises to drop it off your ballot early in the morning. Or,you can just vote at your precinct on Election Day from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., Rodriguez said.
You’re also reminded that you need to sign your ballot, and to bring a Florida driver’s license, identification card, U.S. passport or some other form of photo identification with a signature to the poll.
