Tuesday's election marks the end of the 1990 election season. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7.p.m. Votes will be counted after that.
Registration for the election ended Oct. 8. State elections officials say 6.03-million Floridians signed up to vote. The total number of voters is just 16,168 shy of Florida's all time record, set before the 1988 presidential election.
About 3.1-million Floridians are registered as Democrats and 2.4-million as Republicans.
Division of Elections Director Dot Joyce predicted that up to 65 percent of voters would go to the polls Tuesday.
