Tuesday, November 3 is election in St. Petersburg and across the country — and we want to help you find your polling place. The quickest way to figure it out is to consult Vote Pinellas. Just enter your St. Pete address and the Vote Pinellas system will let you know where to vote.

Here’s what you’ll need to vote in Florida on Election Day:

You will be asked to show a valid photo ID with signature to vote in Florida. Acceptable forms include: Florida driver’s license or ID card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles; US passport; debit or credit card; military ID; student ID; retirement center ID; neighborhood association ID; public assistance ID; veteran health ID issued by the US Department of Veterans Affairs; license to carry a concealed weapon or firearm; or an employee ID card issued by the federal government, the state of Florida, or any county or municipality.

If your photo ID does not include your signature, you will be asked to provide another ID that has your signature.

Voters without ID: If you are unable to provide ID, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot. Your ballot will count if the signature on your ballot matches the signature on your voter registration record.

Are you registered to vote?

Check your registration status online here.

The polls are open on Election Day from 7am-7pm. If you’re still in line after 7pm don’t leave. You’re still entitled to cast your ballot.

For those voting in-person, make sure to bring your mask with you — and gloves. Having hand sanitizer with you is also suggested. If you’d feel more comfortable, consider bringing your own pen to the polling place, as well.

You can learn more by consulting our Pinellas County Voting Guide.

Additional information can be found on Vote Pinellas and via the League of Women Voters.

All voters should be aware of their rights. The ACLU has a helpful list of voting rights that everyone should know.

After you vote, visit Squeeze Juice Works. The locally-owned and operated business is offering discounts to voters with proof that they cast their ballot.

The Tampa Bay Times also has a comprehensive list of answers to your most asked election questions. Read it HERE.
