Be on the Lookout for Your Sample Ballot

 

Broward County, Florida (July 21, 2016) Revised-Broward County voter households should be on the lookout for a generic Primary Election Sample Ballot arriving in the mail between August 1-5, 2016. The Sample Ballot contains the candidates for the Primary Election and important election information that will help the voter prepare to vote.  Please note that one Sample Ballot will be sent per household, unless all voters in the household requested a vote-by-mail ballot.

 

For this upcoming August 30th 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.

 

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 since some numbers may have changed.

 

Voters can get a personalized sample ballot on the web at: www.browardsoe.org by clicking on “voter information” located on the main page, and then clicking on “sample ballot lookup.”

Voter Registration Forms Sent Are Not From Broward Elections Office

Voter Registration Forms Sent Are Not From Broward Elections Office

Broward County, FL. (June 20, 2016)— In recent weeks, many Broward voters have contacted our office alarmed about a mailing they have received regarding their voter status. The opening statements of the letter indicate that the voter is not registered to vote in Broward County. The letter is sent from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) located in Washington D.C.  Although the organization is well- intentioned in its support of voter registration, their mailings are misleading and often sent to voters who are deceased, or unknown at the listed addressed.  Some voters have reported that letters have been addressed to a family pet, an incorrect use of names such as nicknames, or to adult children who no longer reside in the home.

 

We want to insure that voters are not confused by this unsolicited correspondence and that their concerns are addressed quickly.

Therefore, voters who receive the VPC letter are encouraged to contact the office of the Broward County Supervisor to verify their voter status on our website: www.browardsoe.org and click on My Status located on the main page.

 

For additional questions or concerns, voters may call the main office of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections at 954-357-7050 or contact the Voter Participation Center at 202-659-9570.

 

 

Dr. Brenda C. Snipes, Supervisor of Elections
