It's not too late to vote in today's Central Florida elections


Casting a ballot on Election Day is a rush, a rite of passage into adulthood or a new society. It’s also just a plain ole’ right, which now in Florida can no longer be stripped from felons.

That's just one reason to cast your ballot today. Polls are still open until 7 p.m. People in line to vote at 7 will be let in, but don't expect long lines.

There are a lot of big decisions to make across Central Florida. To name a few, Orlando and Oviedo have their mayor’s seat and a city council seat up for grabs, and Tavares residents will choose if they want a $27 million performing art center built in town.

For those who intend to vote – and those who change their mind at the the last minute – make sure you vote in the right place. Polling places are listed on each county’s supervisor of elections websites:

Orange County
Brevard County
Volusia County
Seminole County
Lake County
Marion County
