MIAMI, FL (WFLX) - Voters, get your ballots ready! Early voting begins Monday in Florida: 15 days before the Nov. 4 election.

Nationwide, about a third of the electorate is expected to vote early this year. That would be up from 22% in 2004 and 16% in 2000.

A list of Florida early voting sites is available at the Florida Division of Elections' Web site.

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama has been pushing early voting and is in Florida for its start.

Early voting ends on Nov. 1.
