As cars rushed by early Friday night, the line of voters was wrapped around the building at Jimmie B. Keel Library on Bearss Avenue in north Hillsborough County in Tampa during this last weekend of Early Voting. So much is at stake in this November election as voters decide who should lead America as President/Vice President and who should represent and serve them in Congress, state legislatures and other public offices. Florida’s 3-page ballot also includes amendments on Solar Energy and Legalizing Medical Marijuana.
On this pleasant Fall evening, Marti Dickson was out on Bearss Avenue waving to passersby tonight. Dickson supports Mark Ober, who is running for State Attorney.
The parking lot was filled at Jimmie Keel Library tonight as voters rushed to cast their ballot before polls closed at 7 p.m. The library is one of 16 polling sites in Hillsborough County. Early Voting ends Sunday, November 6th. Polls open from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
The last chance to vote in this election is Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Registered voters must vote in the precinct they are assigned on Election Day. On Tuesday, the polls open again from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Election officials encourage voters to bring valid photo and signature identification to vote during Early Voting or on Tuesday, November 8th.
If you have not turned in your Vote by Mail ballot, Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer recommends voters drop them off at any Early Voting site or SOE offices before 7 p.m. on November 8th. Pollworkers are not allowed do this for you.
