My family and I just got back from early voting. Some of the early voting lines are long but other places have almost no waiting.

The following are my personal recommendations:

We went to http://www.miamidade.gov/... to find wait times and found there was almost no wait at the Flagler branch library nearby.  We were in and out in less than half an hour.

For early voting you can vote at any of the locations in the County

The address on your I.D. does not have to match the address on the voter rolls.  It may not be used to challenge or confirm a voter's legal residence.  Section 101.043(1), Florida Statutes.

If you have moved, you may change your address on election day and still vote a regular ballot if you are still in the same county  If you are in a different county, you must vote a provisional ballot.

The website for wait times is updated regularly.  http://www.miamidade.gov/...

Vote early

If you have trouble at the polls, if you run into any problems, if they try to get you to vote a provisional ballot when you want to vote a regular one, if someone questions your right to vote, there should be a volunteer from the Obama campaign there.  Ask for help. the volunteer inside the polls isn't allowed to talk to you but there should also be a volunteer outside with a button that says "Voting rights questions?  Ask Me" -- that person is from the Obama campaign and can help you.  they should be in contact with the person inside.

I'm not speaking for the campaign, but for myself personally:

Vote YES for Justice Lewis
Vote YES for Justice Pariente
Vote YES for Justice Quince

Vote NO ON ALL THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS, even the ones that look like they might be good.  they aren't.  The one that says it's about religious freedom isn't really.  It's about giving money to churches.

Acceptable photo IDs:  Fla Driver license, Fla ID card issued by Dept of Motor Vehicles, US passport, debit or credit card with picture, military ID, Student ID, Retirement center ID, Neighborhood association ID, Public Assistance ID.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
