Early voting has ended with 42 percent of Polk’s registered voters showing up. It’s too late to request a mail ballot. But there’s still one way for registered voters to cast their ballot: Show up at your polling place on Tuesday. Here is some information on voting and a link to an election guide where you can learn more about the candidates:

Polling places, sample ballots: Find your precinct and check a sample ballot customized to your address.

Mail voting: If you requested and received a mail ballot, you have until 7 p.m. Tuesday to turn it in. If you decide to go to your polling place instead, you can turn in your mail ballot and vote a precinct ballot instead.

Change your information: At any time, you can update your name, party or signature or update your address. Updating your signature could be important in making your vote count if it has changed in the last few years.

Research candidates and ballot issues: Kemp Brinson, a Winter Haven lawyer and friend of jazbablog, has compiled an election guide to help local voters educate themselves on the races and referenda on Tuesday’s ballot.

Campaign contributions: Search through campaign finance reports.
