Early Voting Will End on Sunday, August 28, 2016

 

 

(Broward County)— This a reminder to Broward County voters that Early Voting will be open 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m every day until Sunday, August 28th, 2016.  Due to the potential of an impending storm, which could impact the Early Voting and Election Day schedules, voters are encouraged to take advantage of the Early Voting schedule.  

 

According to the Secretary of State, it is still too premature to determine if the voters will be impacted by the adverse weather.  If it is necessary to suspend voting, the order usually comes from the Governor’s Office.  The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office will continue to monitor the progress of the storm and will use that to guide us going forward.  Voters are encouraged to take advantage of Early Voting while the weather is not inclement.

 

The office will inform the public via press releases to the media regarding any changes.  Broward County voters are also invited to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and our website for updates and information regarding changes to the election:
