Long lines when voting begins in some Palm Beach County precincts

ROYAL PALM BEACH, Fla.--Several hundred thousand registered voters still must cast their ballots in Tuesday's general election.

Large crowds turned out for early voting.

At the Christ Fellowship Church in Royal Palm Beach, voters from twelve Palm Beach County precincts will cast their ballots. Voters showed up as early as 4:30 a.m. Tuesday to get a good spot in line, many saying they wanted to make sure they voted before going to work for the day.

Tamara Santiago, a local voter, says, " I have to be at work at 8 a.m., and I wanted to make sure I made a difference today." Santiago says she woke up at 4 a.m. to get to the precinct early and get to the front of the line.

Palm Beach County elections staff members say you are allowed to bring your sample ballot with you to the polls. It's a large ballot, so they want you to be prepared once you come to vote.

There are several amendments you must read over, along with numerous candidates up for election. Poll workers suggest you fill out your sample ballot ahead of time and bring it with you inside to use as a guide.

The polls close in Palm Beach County at 7 p.m.
