Dear Friends —
Early Voting started on Monday, and we’ve seen an overwhelming turnout in Miami-Dade County. If you haven’t voted yet, please make a plan to turn in your vote-by-mail ballot at one of the 33 Early Voting Sites around the county, or vote in person. The ballot drop boxes and the polling sites are open from 7am – 7pm through November 1. At most locations, you don’t even need to get out of your car to drop off your ballot. Click here to find an Early Voting site near you.
Ways to get involved:
We need volunteers at our Early Voting Sites!
We need more volunteers to help us hand out slate cards at Early Voting Sites across Miami-Dade. Some of our sites still need a Democratic presence. Sign up here: Join the Miami-Dade Dems at an Early Voting Site
