posted by Jessi Minneci - 

Voting polls opened at 7 a.m. on Tuesday and, right away, tons of people across South Florida lined up bright and early to cast their votes.

More than 544,000 voters in Miami-Dade County have already cast their ballots via mail ballot or early voting. Broward County also reported a 130 percent jump in early votes compared to 2014.

Those voting Tuesday are asked to go to their assigned voting location, which can be found by clicking here. 

Locations may also be found on their voter information card or by going to their county's Elections Department website.

When you head to the polls, don't forget to bring with you a valid form of identification that contains a photo and a signature.

Acceptable forms of ID include: Florida driver license, Florida identification card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, United States passport, debit or credit card, military identification, student identification, retirement center identification, public assistance identification, neighborhood association identification, Florida concealed weapon license, veteran health identification card issued by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, or government-issued employee identification.

Those who don't have an ID available will be asked to vote a provisional ballot.

Bringing a current voter information card is not required, but may help expedite the check-in process.

Polls close this evening in Florida at 7 p.m.
