Early voting provides a more convenient alternative to traditional Election Day voting. For those who are unable to make it to their polling place on Election Day, they have the option to vote early when it better fits his or her schedule. Early voting is available at the Elections Office to all Okeechobee County voters up to 15 days before Election Day. If a voter still has a conflict with the designated times to early vote or vote on Election Day, he or she can still vote using the vote by mail (absentee) ballot.
Please bring proper identification for early voting as required by Florida Statutes.
If you are unable to provide proper ID, you can still vote a provisional ballot. As long as you are eligible your provisional ballot will count provided the signature on the provisional ballot voter's certificate and affirmation matches the signature on your registration record.
Do not hesitate to ask if you have questions on procedures for casting your ballot or for using the voting equipment. Sample ballots are available for review prior to each election.
If you need assistance to vote, notify the election worker. You may bring someone to assist you or assistance can be provided.
If you need to change your residence address or update your signature, notify the election worker BEFORE voting. They will assist you with completing the necessary paperwork.
