Voter Households Will Receive Sample Ballots in Mail
Broward County, Florida (July 20, 2018) -Broward County voter households should be on the lookout for a generic Primary Election Sample Ballot arriving in the mail the week of July 23, 2018. The Sample Ballot contains the candidates for the Primary Election and important election information that will help the voter prepare to vote.
For this upcoming August 28th election, please remember that Florida is a closed primary state and only voters with a major party affiliation are eligible to vote in a primary when electing that party’s nominee for the general election. All voters, regardless of affiliation may vote for nonpartisan races and issues such as: judicial and School Board candidates.
There will be a few races on this primary election ballot that are considered a universal primary race. This means that all the candidates for an office have the same party affiliation, and the winner of the primary election will not face any opposition in the general election. Therefore, all registered voters can vote for any of the candidates for that office in the Primary Election.
Please cross-reference the sample ballot with your Voter Information Card to identify your precinct’s assigned congressional, legislative, county commission, and school board district numbers on the ballot in the upcoming election.
Please note: One Sample Ballot will be sent per household.
