Voting on Election Day? Useful information for your convenience

Broward County – In order to make voting convenient, Supervisor of Elections, Dr. Brenda Snipes would like to share the following useful information with Broward voters who are planning to vote on Election Day:

• On Tuesday, November 2, voting hours will be from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. for Broward County citizens who were registered to vote by October 4, 2010.

• Florida law requires voters to present a picture ID with signature. Your Florida Driver’s License is the type of identification that poll workers can process the quickest. If you do not have a Florida Driver’s License you may also present a Florida ID Card, US Passport, Military or Student ID, Public Assistance ID, Neighborhood association identification and Debit/Credit Card. Please note: IDs must have current signature. Any combination of picture and signature is accepted.

• A voter can find their precinct by visiting our website at www.browardsoe.org and going to: “Find Your Precinct and Sample Ballot.” Remember that state law requires that a registered voter vote in the precinct that he or she resides. If you have moved, you are required to vote in your new home precinct.

• A voter is allowed to take to the polls a marked sample ballot or other information into the polling place that may assist them with their choices and make the voting process faster.

• Make sure you have voted in every race your want to participate in and turn the ballot over to make sure there are no contests on the other side. Once your paper ballot goes into the scanner, the ballot cannot be retrieved.

• Name and address changes, or signature updates may be made at the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office by calling 954-357-7050 or by printing a Voter Registration Application online. Address changes within Broward County can be done by phone.
