Early voting began on Monday at the Tamarac Branch Library and voters were lining up all day to cast their ballots.
Voting will continue through November 6 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily, and the last day to request a vote-by-mail ballot is Wednesday, November 2nd at 5:00 p.m.
Tamarac residents can head over to the Tamarac Branch Library on 8701 W. Commercial Boulevard – they won’t miss the campaign signs in front, and can even speak to many of the candidates outside the no-campaigning zone who will be more than happy to tell you more about themselves.
Can’t make early voting? Residents can also vote at the poll located within their precinct on Election Day Tuesday, November 8, 2016. You will find the address listed on your voter’s registration card.
Important elections: Besides our presidential and senatorial races, residents can make important changes to local government by voting for a new Broward County Commissioner who will represent Tamarac along with two city commissioners (depending where you live for the city).
There are also charter amendments on both the county and city level that need your attention, as well as the Penny Tax. And don’t be fooled by the Amendment 1 that appears to be for the sun. It’s deceptive and funded by the big power companies and is anything but pro-solar.
