Early voting for the November 2nd Election

To encourage greater participation in elections and to meet the needs of people who want more options than just voting on a single day at a specified location, Florida law permits voters to cast the ballots during the two weeks prior to each election. 

To participate in early voting, all you need to do is show up with your current photo and signature identification between October 18 and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 31, and cast your ballot. Voting hours and locations are listed below: 
Monday to Friday 10:00 a.m. to - 6:00 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

The Palm Beach County Human Rights Council Voters Alliance recommends that you bring our list of endorsed candidates with you, so that you may support those candidates who support our community.
Please keep in mind that once you have voted by early voting, your vote is cast and final.

Thanks Wes for this info. It is helpful, I think I will do the early voting, can we request the mail in ballot too using that number you have on here?

I agree with voting for most of the HRC suggestions, but not all, I will not vote for any incumbents, so no Hastings, Slosberg, Klein, or Atwater, they have all been in too long in gov, give others a chance, too Hastings was outed many years ago for corruption charges, although he is an advocate for gays, he is a crook and dishonest and has a bad history of bad things he has done, unethical. Too, I will not vote for Clemens, he is a lie and hypocrite, acting like he likes gays, using them, but really hates them, he has treated many gays in this city poorly, including myself, and I will not vote for a fake, he sucked as mayor of LW too and will not get my vote. If he wins, most will find out the truth about the fake and lie and unapproachble thing he is. Most of the other HRC choices are fine and I can go with them.

I just hope the best people win for the city, state, and fed. gov. Most politicians an delected officals once in let the power go to their head and then never really serve their constituents, we need term limits and people who will vote for fairness and equality for ALL.

Early voting! That explains the late night ghoul sighting on Dixie Highway as Larry "Gomez" Mcnamara and his elegant wife Dee "Morticia" Mcnamara stuck "VOTE YES for amendment 4" signs in the public rights of way and private property along Dixie. At 11 at night! Dee was resplendent with her Jack Nicholson/Joker inspired makeup, although I don't think she was wearing SILK! And Larry was slithering in and out of the shadows like he usually does.
So don't fear Lake Worth residents, those evil signs magically appearing overnight are not being left by ghosts, just GHOULS.
Be prepared for the anticipated sighting of mysteriously appearing Mulvehill and Mcvoy signs popping up at an abandoned home or closed business near you!
And Wes's blog buddy said her side wasn't responisble for illegally placing signs. What a kidder she is!

They did a co-endorsement of JoAnn and me last year. Their thinking is that if the incumbent has a 100% voting record for their issues, they will get an endorsement. I was an openly gay candidate and I had been active in the community, so that is why they endorsed me as well. I think a similar thought process went along with their co-endorsement in District #4 this year.

I think they are just gutless.
