Today is last day to request absentee ballot in FL
MIAMI (AP) - Wednesday is the last day to request an absentee ballot to be mailed to you in Florida.
State election officials say voters can still request an absentee ballot in person - even on election day - as long as it's turned in to the elections office by 7 p.m. on Nov. 6.
More than 269,000 absentee ballot requests were made in Miami-Dade County. So far about 144,000 have been returned.
Elections officials want to remind absentee voters that ballots must be received by Tuesday at 7 p.m. to be accepted and voters should make sure they signed inside the red box on the outside of the absentee ballot envelope.
