Margate Votes on Election Day November 6th

Early Voting Happening Through November 4th Around Broward

Early voting for the 2018 General Election is now taking place at 22 Early Voting Sites across Broward County. Instead of voting at your polling place on Election Day or voting by mail, voters may take advantage of Early Voting which will take place from:

7:00 A.M. TO 7:00 P.M.

A list of the 22 sites and hours is available on the Broward County Supervisor of Elections website at www.browardsoe.org.  

Broward County has expanded the early voting sites, dates, and times in an effort to better serve voters. Broward County voters may go to any of the Early Voting Sites to cast a vote. Voters with disabilities will be able to vote using a touchscreen machine located at each Early Voting site. 

Florida law requires voters to present a picture ID with their signature before voting. Acceptable forms of ID are listed at www.browardsoe.org.

The tabulation and results of votes cast during Early Voting will be released after the polls close on Tuesday, November 6th, Election Day.  Results will be reported by precinct.
