TAMPA, Fla.- In the Tampa Bay area today, voters will be casting their votes on federal, state, county, and district races. But before you head out to the polls make sure you know what to bring with you, make sure you know the right polling place, and make sure you are already registered to vote.
What to bring
- You will be asked to show a valid photo ID with signature to vote in Florida. Acceptable forms include; Florida driver’s license or ID card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles; US passport; debit or credit card; military ID; student ID; retirement center ID; neighborhood association ID; public assistance ID; veteran health ID issued by the US Department of Veterans Affairs; license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm; or an employee ID card issued by the federal government, the state of Florida, or any county or municipality. If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature.
- Voters without ID: If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot. Your ballot will count if the signature on your ballot matches the signature on your voter registration record.
If you are unsure if you are registered to vote, or unsure of your polling place, you can visit the ‘Voter Information’ site to double check here.
