Early Voting Ends Today at 7PM – Long Lines at Polls Anticipated on Election Day

By: Robert S Weinroth

OK — this is it!

EARLY VOTING ends at 7PM tonite.

Yesterday the Downtown Boca Raton Library saw its heaviest day (1400 voters). Countywide 157,000 voters had cast a ballot as of 7PM on Saturday with another 15,000 – 20,000 expected today.

Looking for a place with short lines? Wander over to FAU’s Boca Raton campus where turnout has averaged around 300 – 400 each day.

Directions to FAU EARLY VOTING Location:

From I-95 head east on Glades Rd to W. University Dr and turn north. Continue until it intersects with Indian River St. Turn east onto Indian River St and take first left onto Dade Ave. The Housing and Residential Ed. Bldg will be on your right (Housing and Residential Education Bldg Rm 109).

Long lines and delays can be anticipated on Tuesday. Don’t procrastinate – Vote!

DON’T FORGET – If you do wait until ELECTION DAY you must vote at your assigned precinct. ALSO – If you received an Absentee (Vote by Mail) ballot and want to vote in person (either at EARLY VOTING or on ELECTION DAY) bring your unused Absentee Ballot in to the poll to have it canceled to facilitate the process of verifying you are eligible to vote!

Palm Tran has announced FREE BUS SERVICE will be offered to voters showing a Voter Registration Card upon boarding a bus on one of their fixed routes. Check Palm Tran schedules to determine the proper route to get you to your assigned precinct. 

There is NO EXCUSE left — it’s your right — it’s your responsibility! BAD politicians are elected by GOOD people who do not vote.

It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness – your single vote matter!
