Early in-person voting will begin Monday in Duval County's local election.

All registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, will be able to vote for mayor, property appraiser and at-large City Council seats. Most voters also will select a City Council representative from their district.

A candidate must get more than 50% of the vote to win. If no one does, the two top finishers will advance to the general election May 16.

Voters can go to any early voting site through March 19. There will be no early voting the day before Election Day, which is March 21. On Election Day, voters must vote at their precinct sites.

You'll find a list of Duval's early voting sites here. For other counties, check with your supervisor of elections about dates and locations. Here's a list of those offices.

To vote early, remember to bring current photo and signature identification with you. You should not be turned away from the polls because you do not bring identification. If you do not have the proper identification, you will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot.

For people with mail ballots, secure drop boxes will be available at each early voting site.
