LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Thousands have already cast their ballots at early voting stations and by mail. Now, Tuesday is final day to make your vote count.
There was no line outside the Lee Elections Office in Cape Coral, but a poll worker told WINK News he's already seen more people today than on primary day.
One voter told WINK it took her about eight minutes to get in and out.
If the turnout Tuesday is anything like what's been seen prior to election day, we may see some record figures. Before the polls even opened at 7 am, more than two million Floridians had already cast their ballots either through absentee or early voting. That's a significant jump from the last midterm elections four years ago.
More than one million Floridians had voted in person, a 65 percent increase from 2006. The rest mailed in absentee ballots. In Lee County, more than 36,000 votes were submitted early.
The polls will remain open until 7:00 Tuesday evening. You have to be in line by that time in order to vote.
Make sure you go to your designated polling place and take a photo ID. If not, you'll have to cast a provisional ballot.
