MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Time is running out for people who want to vote by mail with an absentee ballot.
Wednesday Oct. 31st is the last day for voters to request absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 election.
You can request absentee ballots by phone, mail, or Internet but the request must be at the Supervisor of Elections Office by the end of the day Wednesday.
Once you get the ballot, don’t delay. The ballots must be back at the Supervisor of Elections Office by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Postmarks don’t count.
State election officials say voters can still request an absentee ballot in person — even on Election Day — as long as it’s turned in to the elections office by 7 p.m. on Nov. 6.
Don’t forget to sign the red voter certificate box on the outside of the absentee ballot envelope.
More than 269,000 absentee ballot requests were made in Miami-Dade County. So far about 144,000 have been returned.
