The election for Tampa's mayor and city council has officially begun.
Starting today and running through March 3, Tampa voters can cast their 2019 municipal ballots at any of seven early voting sites throughout the city from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The ballots will also include 18 proposed amendments to Tampa's City Charter.
Voters can go to any Early Voting site and their ballot will be printed for them at the voting location. This is different than Election Day voting, when residents can only vote in the polling place assigned to their precinct.
Early Voting sites are:
Fred B. Karl County Center: 601 E. Kennedy Blvd.
Robert L. Gilder Elections Service Center: 2514 North Falkenburg Rd.
Cyrus Greene Center: 2101 E. Dr. MLK Jr. Blvd.
Jan Kaminis Platt Regional Library: 3910 S Manhattan Ave.
New Tampa Regional Library: 10001 Cross Creek Blvd.
North Tampa Branch Library: 8916 North Blvd.
West Tampa Branch Library: 2312 W. Union St.
Voters are encouraged to bring their marked-up sample ballot for reference, and a Florida Driver License or other photo or signature identification for voter check-in.
A full list of accepted IDs is available at VoteHillsborough.org.
Voters can also drop their Vote By Mail ballots off at any of the Early Voting sites while they're open for voting. More information is available at VoteHillsborough.org or by calling (813) 744-5900.
