MIAMI — Being a registered voter comes with great responsibility. Showing up at the polls with an understanding of the many ballot items is necessary to be an informed voter. With the November 6, 2018 General Election quickly approaching, voters are encouraged to review their customized sample ballot before heading to the polls. There are a lot of candidates and a lot of questions, which means a long ballot.

“Whether voters plan to vote by mail, vote early, or vote at their precinct on Election Day, I encourage them to review their sample ballot ahead of time.

This way, voters can research candidates and questions in advance and be prepared when they cast their ballot,” said Supervisor of Elections Christina White.

A majority of Miami-Dade County voters can expect a four-page ballot (front/back). While voters that live in Bal Harbour, Bay Harbor Islands, Biscayne Park, Cutler Bay, Doral, Key Biscayne, Miami, Miami Beach, Medley, Miami Gardens, Miami Lakes, Miami Springs, North Bay Village, North Miami Beach, Opa-locka, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest, Sunny Isles Beach and West Miami will also have ballot content. Miami-Dade County is “Election Ready,” and voters can be too by preparing in advance.

Registered voters can easily access their customized sample ballot online at oter-information.asp by entering basic information from their voter record. The voter’s specific ballot can then be viewed and/or printed.

Voters who would like to receive their customized sample ballot via email prior to each election can sign up by calling 305-499-VOTE (8683).
