Lines Begin Forming Before Sunrise In South Florida On Second Day Of Early Voting

MIAMI (CBSMiami) - Day two of early voting in South Florida was another day of dodging showers to cast ballots.

Lines at some locations, including the elections headquarters in Doral, started forming before sunrise.

Though, the wait to vote was much less on Tuesday.

"I saw empty parking spots and I go 'this is the time to do it,'' said early voter, Paul Ryan.

Ryan avoided the line Monday but was here Tuesday. He calls himself a super voter who never misses an election.

"My biggest issues are health care, education and the environment. Without an education, you won't have an informed public. Without your health you have nothing."

In Miami-Dade, Inez Frye showed up at 5:30 cast her ballot at the elections headquarters.

"As a country we need to unite. This is not working anymore," said Frye.

The numbers show Miami-Dade making a beeline to the voting booth. Over 43,000 cast ballots on day one of early voting.

In Broward, it was not quite as strong as day one with 28,000 early voters Monday. Four years ago, more than 31,000 early voted on day one.

In both counties, thousands of people are dropping mail-in ballots at South Florida's 55 early voting locations.

"With all the rumors about the post office, this seemed more secure. That is all," said early voter, Kathleen McCool.

On Day 1 of early voting, Broward voters showed up by the thousands from one end of the county to the other.
