Polls are now open across Florida and will stay open until 7 p.m.
Currently more than 9 million Floridians have cast ballots in the general election, meaning that Florida’s turnout rate before today’s polls opened is already at 63 percent. That includes about 4.7 million people who have cast ballots by mail and another 4.3 million who voted in person during early voting.
Prior to today, Election Day, Democrats had cast 39.1 percent of the votes to Republicans’ 37.8 percent, while no-party-affiliated voters accounted for 21.6 percent of the votes cast so far.
Voters who have not yet returned their mail ballots can do so by dropping them off at elections offices in their counties by 7 p.m. Any mail ballots returned after this time are not allowed to be counted,
