With the Nov. 4 General Election underway, voters are encouraged to become familiar with their specific ballot content before casting their vote.
The upcoming election consists of candidate races at all levels of government. All Miami-Dade voters can expect a two-page ballot (front/back), inclusive of three proposed constitutional amendments and five county questions. In addition, 18 municipalities have ballot content in this election.
Copies of the Official Sample Ballot are now available at public libraries, county and commission offices, and city halls.
To sign up to receive your customized sample ballot via email, call 305-499-VOTE (8683) and opt in to receive the customized sample ballot eblasts prior to each election.
Moreover, registered voters can quickly access their Customized Sample Ballot now online at http://www.miamidade.gov/elections/voter-information.asp
By entering minimal voter information, voters can quickly view the ballot content they are eligible to vote in. This gives voters the opportunity to make their decisions prior to voting, thereby expediting their voting experience.
“I encourage registered voters to prepare ahead and be ‘election ready.’ Whether they vote early, by absentee or on Election Day, it will be a faster and more efficient process if our voters take the opportunity to review their sample ballot ahead of time,” said Penelope Townsley, supervisor of elections. “I would even suggest printing the sample ballot and having it handy while they vote.”
This tool also allows voters to review the registration information on file, confirm their Election Day voting location, track their absentee ballot, and much more. For more information, visit www.iamelectionready.org. To speak to a representative, call 3-1-1 or 305- 499-VOTE (8683).
