Early voting is underway in Florida! With the huge voter turnout expected in this election, officials are encouraging everyone to vote early or by mail to help avoid long lines, clogged polling locations, or attempts at voter suppression/intimidation.

Everyone needs to go out and vote! Make your voices heard!

To find your early voting polling place- and a lot of other voting info- visit Vote For Change. Also, Equality Florida has released an interactive voter guide that you can customize to the races in your area. The Florida Gay Caucus Political Committee (FGCPC) has also announced its Broward recommendations and candidate information as well.

Get out there and VOTE EARLY!!!
