Early Voting Starts Monday in Hillsborough
There are 16 early voting sites in Hillsborough County.
HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY – Voters here can cast their ballots in person for the General Election beginning Monday (Oct. 24).
Early voting will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Nov. 6, including weekends. Voters can go to any of the 16 sites to vote and are encouraged to visit VoteHillsborough.org to check wait times before heading out to vote. Vote-by-mail ballots can also be dropped off at any of the early voting sites while they’re open for voting.
To avoid delays, have one or two forms of identification that include your signature and photo. Without proper identification, you may still vote a provisional ballot, which will later be evaluated by a canvassing board for eligibility. Any of these forms of photo identification are acceptable:
- Florida Driver License
- Florida ID Card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles
- U.S. Passport
- Debit or Credit Card
- Military ID
- Student ID
- Retirement Center ID
- Neighborhood Association ID
- Public Assistance ID
- Veteran Health ID (issued by VA)
- Concealed Weapon License (issued pursuant to s. 790.06)
- Government Employee ID
If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature.
Elections officials suggest you bring your sample ballot to the polling place with notes on how you plan to vote. By making your voting decisions before going to the polling place, you help keep the lines down.
You can vote in any early voting site that is open. This is much different than Election Day (Nov. 8) voting, when you must vote in the polling place assigned to your precinct. For the 2016 Primary and General Elections, the Hillsborough elections office will have 16 early vote sites open. For a list and a map of all sites, click here.
