-- Voters in the state of Florida are heading to the polls on Election Day 2016.
There are 29 electoral votes at stake in Florida in the presidential race. The Sunshine State is a key battleground state and a large electoral-vote prize. Florida has been seen as a must-win for Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Florida voters chose the electoral vote winner in the last five presidential elections, the most famous of which came in 2000, when the state’s then-25 votes tipped the race for George W. Bush. The Sunshine State went blue for Barack Obama in 2012 and 2008, awarding him just over 50 percent of its vote in each race.
Florida allows early voting.
Voting History in the Past Five Presidential Elections:
Florida voters will decide whether Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio gets a second term. They'll also pick at least eight new U.S. House members after districts were redrawn to comply with the state constitution, and will cast ballots on legalizing medical marijuana. Rubio faces Democratic U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, while ex-Republican Gov. Charlie Crist hopes to revive his political career — now as a Democrat — in a race against Republican U.S. Rep. David Jolly in a St. Petersburg-area district. -The Associated Press
