LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- You can cast your vote for the next mayor of Fort Myers or Cape Coral.  Polls will be open in both cities from 7 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The election was supposed to be in September but was pushed back because of Hurricane Irma.

If you live within the city limits of Cape Coral, you'll be able to vote for the mayor and district offices One and Four.  Seven candidates are running for mayor. 

If you live within the city limits of Fort Myers, three candidates are running for mayor.  And if you live within wards Three and Five are you eligible to vote for a council member in your assigned ward.

If you don't know where you need to go to vote, go here.

But Lee County says one voting location has changed.  If you normally vote in precinct 93 in Cape Coral, Tuesday’s temporary voting location will be at 4307 Skyline Boulevard.

Again, this is a temporary change for primary election day only.

A sample ballot with a list of candidates can be viewed HERE.
