Two truckloads of absentee ballots were delivered to the Broward Supervisor of Elections Tuesday as they prepare to send them out to voters in the General Election.

"This is a big day for us in Broward County, it's an opportunity for us to get our first major drop of absentee ballots in the mail," Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said.

In past elections, they've only needed one 18-wheeler to haul the ballots from the U.S. Post Office, but with more than 111,000 absentee ballots scheduled to be mailed out, it took two trucks to make the delivery, Snipes said.

Snipes said she expects to have at least 125,000 absentee ballots in the mail by the end of Tuesday. Last Friday, Miami-Dade sent 172,000 absentee ballots out to voters.

Voters in both counties have until Oct. 31 to request an absentee ballot but Tuesday is last day to register to vote in the General Election on Nov. 6.
