Get out and vote today in Florida's primaries

Floridians will decide Tuesday which Democratic and Republican presidential nominees should keep campaigning and which ones should just pack up and go home. 

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Orange County residents can vote for their preferred candidate. If you don't know your polling location, check here. Florida is a closed primary state, which means you can only vote for Democratic and Republican candidates if you are registered with the party. Sorry, independent voters. 

The latest Quinnipiac University Poll shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is currently beating her rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, with a margin of 60 percent to 34 percent among Democrats in the state. The same poll shows Florida Republicans prefer businessman Donald Trump to Florida’s junior Sen. Marco Rubio by a margin of 46 percent to 22 percent. 

Voters in Illinois, Ohio, North Carolina and Missouri will also be picking their presidential nominees Tuesday.
