Important reminders for absentee voters and media covering election results

(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 
The Miami-Dade County Elections Department would like to remind those voters who requested an absentee ballot and have not returned it that the absentee ballot must be delivered in person by 7:00 p.m.  Absentee ballots received after 7:00 p.m. will not be counted, per state law. 

Voters can drop off their absentee ballot at one of the following locations:

  • Elections Department Headquarters (2700 NW 87th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33172)
  • Satellite Office at the Stephen P. Clark Center (111 NW 1st Street, Miami, Florida 33128)

Per state law, the completed absentee ballot must be in the Elections Department's possession by 7:00 p.m.  State law provides that any voter in line at their precinct by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day will be afforded the opportunity to vote.  This does not apply to absentee ballots.

Election Day Results
Election results will become available on the Department's website beginning at 7:15 p.m. on November 6 and will be updated regularly throughout the night and possibly into the next day.  The Elections Department will indicate once the final election results are posted on its website.
