The Florida Department of State Division of Elections maintains a Web site with a list of frequently asked questions and answers. Here are some of those most relevant now for the Nov. 7 election.
Casting your ballot
What kind of identification do I need to bring to the polls?
When you go to the polling place to vote, you will be asked to provide a current and valid picture identification with a signature. Approved forms of picture identification are a Florida driver's license; a Florida ID card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles; a U.S. passport; an employee badge or identification; a buyer's club ID card; a debit or credit card; military identification; student identification; retirement center identification; a neighborhood association ID; or a public assistance ID.
If the picture identification does not contain a signature, you will be asked to provide an additional identification with your signature. If you do not have the proper identification, you will be required to vote a provisional ballot.
I have requested an absentee ballot and now I have changed my mind and want to vote at the polls. May I?
Yes. If you received your absentee ballot, you should return it, voted or not, to the poll workers on Election Day. Your absentee ballot will be voided and you will be allowed to vote at the polls.
