The 3 Ways to Vote


Natasha Kuneff, Reporter

With all the confusion going on, it is difficult to find information on how to vote. Here are all the ways to vote, the dates, what you need to bring, and how to do it — all compiled in one place.

Early Voting

Preceding Election Day, a person may cast a ballot at any formal early voting location. It’s convenient, and the voting equipment used is the same — so there aren’t any detriments.

The dates to vote early in the general election are October 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and November 1st (this is only for Florida). Any open early voting site can be used, keeping in mind the dates. You will need to bring a valid photo and signature identification.

Vote by Mail

To vote by mail, you need to request a ballot from the Supervisor of Elections of your county. You can go through the list and proceed from there.

This option is also easy since you can track the ballot, and it can be done at home. You don’t have to go anywhere, like with the other choices. Once you use it, a ballot will be sent every election — unless you miss one of the forms.

Remember, there is a deadline! Request your ballot to be sent before 5 p.m., ten days before the election.

Election Day Voting

You will need to find your precinct before voting. Make sure to bring a suitable identification method — this your last opportunity to vote!

The Election Day polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., and everybody waiting will have their chance (so you will be allowed to cast a ballot even if you run out of time). You may contact your Supervisor of Elections to figure out where to go.
