Voters have until 5 p.m. Thursday to ensure provisional ballots are counted

MIAMI (WSVN) - If you voted provisionally on Election Day, time is running out to make sure your vote is counted.

According to the Florida Division of Elections, voters who cast provisional ballots have until 5 p.m. Thursday to provide proof that they were eligible to vote when they cast their ballot.

Provisional ballots are given to people who are not able to prove that they are eligible to vote at the precinct on Election Day. Until they submit proof they were eligible to vote where they did, the vote will not count.

In the 2016 election, the Secretary of State’s office says 24,460 provisional ballots were cast. Of those ballots, just 10,998 were ultimately counted.

Voters can fax, send a personal email or arrive in person at their respective county’s Supervisor of Elections Office to verify their identity and provide necessary documents proving eligibility, WLRN reports.
