How to Vote Absentee
Lauderhill City Elections are on March 14. There are two items to vote on, the Mayor race and a Charter Amendment to move city elections to November from March. For those who cannot go to the polls on March 14, they can vote via absentee. But to do so requires you to request an absentee ballot first. Either by mailing in a request card, requesting through the internet, or requesting by phone.
THIS ELECTION WILL NOT HAVE EARLY VOTING AND ABSENTEE VOTING IS YOUR ALTERNATIVE TO VOTING ON MARCH 14.
To obtain an absentee ballot, the easiest way is to log on to www.browardsoe.org. From there you will go to election information, and then you will see where you can directly request the absentee ballot. This method does not require you to fill out a paper card and mail it back in. Also, you will be able to assure that your request is filed. Later you will receive in the mail the ballot to complete and mail in.
For more information you can contact the Supervisor of Elections at 954-357-7055. You can also request one by calling the same number. Please have your voter card information available.
BE CAREFUL OF ANY UNSOLICITED ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST FORM YOU MAY RECEIVED IN THE MAIL. IT MAY DIRECT THE REQUEST TO SOMEWHERE OTHER THAN DIRECTLY TO THE SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS.
If you do not get your absentee ballot in the mail in a reasonable time or have any questions/problems on voting, call the Supervisor at that same number. Remember, you must get the ballot back timely for it to count.
