Tips for Voters to Make Primary Election Smoother

Florida's Statewide Primary Election is Tuesday, Aug. 18, and Supervisor of Elections Lori Edwards has some helpful tips for Polk County voters.

Voters registered with one of Florida's major political parties will help nominate the candidates who will represent their party on the General Election ballot in November. All voters may vote on important local races. Here are tips to make voting smoother:

• Bring photo and signature ID to the polls when you vote

• The polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Election Day

• You may take your sample ballot into the polling room

• If you have moved, changed your name or your signature has changed, notify the Elections Office before Election Day

• Double check your polling location as some have changed for this election
