96 hours of early voting starts today, Saturday, June 18, 2011. There are 20 locations to cast your vote early for Miami-Dade County Mayor. There are only two Saturdays for early voting, June 18 and June 25 (also the last day of early voting). There is only one day of Sunday early voting - June 19.
It will be easier to get out and vote at some convenient time in the next 86 hours than to figure out a reason why not to vote. This election is far too important for the future of Miami-Dade County.
Don’t let others make this important decision for you. Election Day is Tuesday, June 28.
You, the voter, should determine the outcome of this election. This election should not be decided by someone paid to collect and fill out absentee ballots, emphasis on absentee. Absentee ballot voters should mail in their own ballot to the elections department. Do not hand over your ballot to an unknown "ballot collector". Protect your vote. Prevent vote fraud.
Under a recently changed Florida law, the early voting will span just eight days — June 18 through June 25. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. This is the second election affected by the new law that limits voter participation. Please see a prior post: “Change your plans last-minute early voters.Change to the voting schedule came swiftly, and without much notice.”
Please join me at the polls, the future of our community is far too important not to participate.
