In-person early voting has already begun in 37 Florida with Election Day on Nov. 8.

The first counties to open up early voting on Monday were Hillsborough, Pinellas, Sarasota, and Manatee. Four more counties will follow suit later in the week.

Deputy Supervisor of Elections for Pinellas County Dustin Chase said residents "can come early vote, it's one of three ways that voters can cast a ballot in Florida, we have mail ballots, we have early voting, and then of course, on Election Day."

Pinellas County now has two more early voting locations available than in the 2020 general election.

"Voters in Pinellas County will have more access to ballots than they have ever had before, we're really proud of this, and every single voter in Pinellas County is going to be within five miles of an early voting site," Chase said about voting locations in Pinellas, Florida.

Polls will be open Monday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Nov. 6. Voters are required to bring a current photo ID with their signature.

The Florida Division of Elections has a full list of early voting and ballot intake stations throughout the state. There's also still time for mail-in ballots to be cast. The last day one can be requested is Oct. 29.

Over 1.3 million mail-in ballots have been sent in. Democratic voters have been noted to have a higher percentage of mail-in ballots than Republican voters. Of the over a million ballots mailed in, close to 490,000 have been from Republican voters.

Chase emphasized the messages that election officials have been repeating throughout the country.

"It doesn't matter to us how voters vote, as long as they're out there casting ballots, that's the most important part," he said.
