Two weeks of early voting in four Miami-Dade communities comes to an end Sunday in three cities — Miami, Miami Beach and Hialeah. Homestead ends early voting Saturday afternoon.
Polling hours on Tuesday, Election Day, are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Voters in the city of Miami have to select a new mayor, two new commissioners, and decide whether to spend $400 million on affordable housing and sea-rise projects.
Miami Beach’s municipal election has generated much of the attention for its referendum on whether to change last call for alcohol on Ocean Drive.
Voters will decide the future of South Beach’s after-hours party atmosphere when they answer the ballot question of whether the city should end drinking at 2 a.m. instead of 5 a.m. If the measure is approved, all establishments on Ocean Drive, including the Clevelander and Mango’s Tropical Café, except indoor portions of bars that are completely enclosed and located entirely within hotels, would have to stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m.
Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine first pitched the controversial change last year.
Miami Beach residents can vote in the general and special elections at Miami Beach City Hall, 1700 Convention Center Dr.; and North Shore Branch Library, 7501 Collins Ave., from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Hialeah residents can vote early in the primary and special elections for mayor and two council seats at the JFK Library, 190 W. 49th St., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Homestead’s early voting ends at 4 p.m. Saturday at the William F. Dickinson Community Center, 1601 N. Krome Ave. Homestead voters are deciding on races for vice mayor and two council seats.
Miami voters still have from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to get early voting ballots in this weekend.
