Florida representatives encourage residents to vote

SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - U.S. Florida representatives are trying a last minute push for a spot on Capitol Hill.

Republican Carlos Curbelo urged voters to hit the polls Tuesday. The incumbent representative was at Caribbean Elementary School in South Miami-Dade.

“It’s great to be here, greeting the voters,” Curbelo said. “A lot of people voted absentee and early.”

He then visited other precincts in Kendall and Homestead.

Curbelo’s opponent, Joe Garcia, is also doing his part. The former congressman was out at Christina Eve Elementary in Southwest Miami-Dade.

“People have to vote,” Garcia said. “It does nothing to talk about it. If you don’t vote, it hurts the whole country. Go out and vote and make a difference.”

It was just one of the many stops his camp made, in an effort to encourage people to voice their choice. He’s planning to visit one more location Tuesday afternoon.
