Pat Larkins 520 MLK Blvd. Pompano Beach, FL Tuesday & Thursday 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. V O I C E O F T H E E L E C T I O N S Message from Dr. Brenda C. Snipes Dear one million sixty-three thousand two hundred fifty-eight Broward County Voters. As I write this huge number (1,063,258), I am impressed! Each of you is a member of a very powerful group a member who has the power to impact the future through casting your vote across all levels of government. We encourage you to cast your vote and let your voices be heard. You may choose the voting option which best suits your schedule vote by mail, vote early or vote on election day (November 4, 2014). Each of these methods has its own special characteristics. Vote-by-mail ballots (absentee) are available upon request. If your request is already on file, you will receive your ballot beginning next week. Requests for ballots to be mailed are accepted until Wednesday, October 29, Voted ballots need to be returned to the SOE no later than 7:00 p.m. on election day. Early voting has become a very popular form of voting. This year, we will offer a fourteen-day schedule at twenty locations across Broward County. You may vote Monday, through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The African American Research Library will be open on Sunday, November 2nd from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. On November 4th, voters may choose to go to their assigned polling place. Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Because some locations and precinct numbers may have changed, voters should verify their polling location by reviewing the voter information card. If the card has a date before 2013, please contact our office or visit our website at and click on precinct finder to access your updated polling location. Remember that a picture I.D. with signature is required when voting early or at your polling place. The Florida Driver's License is the preferred form of I.D (other accepted forms of ID are mentioned in this brochure). Phone: Included in this brochure is a list of commonly asked questions regarding election procedures. Please review to get answers to some of your questions before casting your ballot. 1

6 PLEASE BRING YOUR PICTURE IDENTIFICATION ON ELECTION DAY! Acceptable Forms of Picture Identification - Florida Driver s License - Military or Student ID - Florida ID Card - Public Assistance ID - US Passport - Debit/ Credit Card - Retirement Center ID - Neighborhood Assoc. ID *IDs must have current signature. Any combination of Picture and Signature are accepted. ELECTION MYTHS VS. FACTS MYTH: The address on the driver s license must match the address in the voter registration record in order for the voter to be able to vote. FACT: The address on the driver s license does not need to match the address in the voter registration record. If you have moved and haven t changed your driver s license to reflect your new address, that s okay. What is important is that you vote in the precinct where you currently live, no matter what your driver s license says. MYTH: If a voter does not have a driver s license, the voter cannot vote. FACT: In order to vote at the polls during early voting or on Election Day, you must show a photo and signature identification. Identification must be current and valid. If your photo identification does not contain your signature, you will be required to show an additional form of identification that provides your signature (see I.D. listed above). Please note: I.D. is not required for persons who cast an absentee ballot. However, the signature on the voter registration database is compared to the signature on the voting certificate envelope. The two signatures must match in order for the ballot to be counted. MYTH: Voters will be turned away if they are wearing campaign apparel. FACT: Voters may wear campaign buttons, shirts, hats, or any other campaign items when they enter the polling place to vote. Voters may not otherwise campaign there. (From the Polling Place Procedures Manual incorporated within Rule 1S-2.034, Florida Administrative Code). So, merely going to the polls wearing campaign paraphernalia is OK, but, by statute (s (4), Florida Statutes), one cannot solicit voters within 100 feet of the entrance to any polling place. MYTH: Voters will not be allowed to vote, even if they are in line before the polls close. FACT: Any voter who is in line at 7:00 p.m. will be allowed to vote (See sections , Florida Statutes). 6

7 ELECTION MYTHS VS. FACTS (CONT.) MYTH: If your house is under foreclosure, you will not be able to vote. FACT: A foreclosure notice does not necessarily mean that a person no longer resides in the home, as people often remain in the home after foreclosure begins and are sometimes able to refinance the home. Voters whose homes have been foreclosed, but who remain in their homes may continue to vote in their assigned precinct. Voters who have physically moved from their foreclosed residence with no intention of returning to that address may still vote, but should provide a change of address to the supervisor of elections. Voters must vote in the precinct where their residence is located. MYTH: If you are a Florida college student, you have to change your permanent residence to your college address. FACT: Students can maintain their voter registration at their hometown address, or they may register to vote in the jurisdiction where they attend school. Those who choose to maintain a Broward County registration will want to remember to contact our office for absentee ballots at election time. Students must change their address if they want to vote on the ballot for their college town. MYTH: If the voter is homeless and has no legal residence, the voter may not vote. FACT: State registration laws may not discriminate against the homeless in voter registration as long as the homeless applicant for voter registration intends to remain in a locale and has either a place where he or she can receive messages or an effective mailing address. The homeless person will vote in the precinct where the applicant receives messages (e.g., rescue mission) or the precinct in which the applicant s effective mailing address is located. MYTH: IF the voter does not have the voter information card, the voter may not vote. FACT: The voter information card is not necessary to vote. It is a helpful tool for the voter to know their districts & polling location. MYTH: Provisional ballots are only counted when there is a close race. FACT: A provisional ballot is always counted when the voter is shown to be registered and eligible, regardless of the closeness of the outcome of the election. A person who votes provisionally simply because he or she did not present an I.D. at the polling place will not have to do anything else. If the signatures on that ballot certificate and the voter roll match, the provisional ballot is counted if the provisional ballot is cast in the correct precinct. MYTH: Absentee ballots are only counted when there is a close race. FACT: All absentee ballots are counted if properly executed, which includes making sure that the return envelope is signed and that the signature matches the voter s signature on the voter registration database. MYTH: Voters need a reason to request an absentee ballot. FACT: Florida is a no-excuse absentee ballot state. Any qualified (registered) voters are permitted to vote absentee under Florida law. The law requires a written request signed by the voter if the request is to mail the absentee ballot to an address other than the legal residence or the mailing address on file. EXCEPTION: An absent uniformed service voter or an overseas voter is not required to have a signed, written request for the ballot to be mailed to different address (FS effective 01/01/14). MYTH: There is no more early voting on Sundays. FACT: There are two Sundays during Early Voting. Early Voting for the General Election begins Monday, October 20 th, to Sunday, November 2 nd.
