Early Voting Totals For Day 1 In For Miami-Dade County

Early voting totals are already racking up in Miami-Dade County.

Just under 15,000 people cast ballots on Monday -- the first available day to vote early in the 2018 midterms. That compares to more than 80,000 who went to the polls on the first day of early voting in the presidential election two-years ago.

By comparison, in 2014, fewer than 5,000 ballots were cast on the first day of early voting in that mid-term.

Election Day is two weeks from today, though early voting began yesterday in more than 30 counties and will be taking place in all 67 counties by Saturday. 

That includes Panhandle counties hit hard by Hurricane Michael, where some elections offices are still running on emergency generators.  

Elections supervisors are encouraging people to vote now because a ballot that includes a dozen proposed constitutional amendments could lead to long lines on November 6th.
