Time to Vote is March 14

The date of election is fast approaching, March 14. Lauderhill voters will chose their next Mayor and two Charter Amendments. All three votes will have a significant impact in the future of the city. It is encouraged that come March 14, you get out and vote.

First, Voters will decide whether to return Mayor Richard J. Kaplan as your Mayor, or to select someone else. Also, Voters will decide on whether to change City Elections from March to November, along with another technical amendment related to this move. The change will increase the number of voters in these elections, and reduce the cost to Lauderhill between $50,000 to $100,000. However, City Elections will come at the bottom of the ballot.

If you have any questions about where to vote or the procedure, contact the Broward Supervisor of Elections, 954-357-7050. A few precincts have changed, including those that previously voted at City Hall, the Inverrary Association, or at Parkway Middle.

If you have not received your requested absentee ballot, call immediately, there may be a problem on receiving it. If you have not already received the absentee ballot you may need to make plans to vote at your assigned precinct to make sure your vote counts. If you did receive your absentee ballot but have not mailed it back yet, you may drop it off at the precinct on election day to make sure it is counted. To be counted, the absentee ballot must be received timely, not just mailed timely.
