Belle Isle polling place moves to City Hall on Tuesday

If you didn’t vote early and plan to cast your primary ballot on election day Tuesday, the usual Belle Isle polling place has moved.

The city announced Monday it was temporarily closing the Botanical Gardens so it could be searched for mosquitoes in light of the Zika virus. That’s been the site of Miami Beach voting precinct 30, which serves Belle Isle, for a number of years.

Instead, you’ll need to go to Miami Beach City Hall, 1700 Convention Center Dr. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
