This is in response to rec list diary about waiting in line for 9 hours today to early vote in Florida.   If you don't want to wait in line there is another way.  True early vote ended today but I just received an email from my local Dem. party stating that if I haven't voted I could avoid lines by picking up an absentee ballot at the county supervisor of elections office (there are 3 in my county) tomorrow.

On Sunday, you can still avoid lines at the polls by picking up a Mail Ballot in any Elections Office.

Open Sunday, Nov 4th – 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This is Pinellas.  But I would check with your county supervisor of elections office to see if they will also be open tomorrow.   This may be statewide as we have a republican SOE who wouldn't open unless it was the law.

Once you pick up your absentee ballot you can just complete it on the spot and just turn it in just as if it was mailed.  Make sure you sign the envelope and follow all instructions.

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.
