Elections Local


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Sunday is the last day to cast early votes in the Tampa Bay area.

Halloween marked the last day of early voting for Citrus, Hardee, Hernando, Highlands, and Pasco counties: Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota counties wrap up early voting Sunday.

If you’re voting early and in person, make sure to bring a valid photo identification and a signature identification to your early voting site. Voters are allowed to vote at any early voting site that’s open within your county – it doesn’t have to be your specific precinct or regular poll location.

Here is when and where you can vote in each county:

“Early voting is expected to draw a record number of voters this year, so there may be some lines at times,” Polk County Supervisor of Election Lori Edwards told 8 On Your Side. “I don’t expect anyone to have to wait multiple hours as has been reported in other states.”

Edwards pointed out there are more Election Day precincts than there are early voting locations.

“As a result, lines are almost always shorter at Election Day polling location,” she said. “So here’s my tip for voters: If you want to vote in person, and your schedule permits, vote at your Election Day polling location between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. That’s usually the least busy time to vote.”


Early voting begins Monday, Oct. 19 in Sarasota County and ends Sunday, Nov. 1.
