Ballots can be cast in any of the 26 early voting locations across Hillsborough County, and mail-in ballots can be dropped off in person.

Voters should bring a Florida driver's license, or any other acceptable form of photo ID.

Hillsborough Supervisor of Elections Craig Latimer said the county is opening polls earlier in order to allow voters more time to cast their ballots.

"We are a large county and I want our voters to have plenty of options, so I keep early voting open for the maximum number of days allowed by law, including two full weekends," Latimer said in a news release.
