Early voting in the 2022 midterms begins: ‘Future of the country is at stake’
Early voting for the 2022 midterm elections began Monday.
Lawrence “Larry” Goodman was among the first to cast his ballot at the Coral Gables War Memorial Youth Center, at 405 University Dr., one of the 28 locations in Miami-Dade County.
“I always vote in the midterms, and yeah, I feel like this one is really quite high stakes,” Goodman said adding, “The future of the country, I think, is very much at stake.”

There are 24 early voting locations in Broward County and five locations in Monroe County that also opened on Monday morning. Florida election officials require a valid photo and signature identification.
The deadline to request a mail-in ballot from the elections office is Oct. 29. As of Friday afternoon, more than a million voters had already returned theirs in Florida.
Joan and Cliff Titus agreed with Goodman. They said they decided to drop off their mail-in ballot because they don’t trust the mail service.
“I think it’s going to have a major turnout this time around. I think people are going to decide one or the other what this country wants to be,” Titus said.
