WHAT IS A MUNICIPAL ELECTION?
Municipalities have governing bodies whereby the members are elected by the voters. Each of the 31 municipalities in Broward has a Charter which stipulates the term of the office and the frequency of the elections. Until 2004, all Broward municipalities held their elections the second Tuesday in March. One city also requires a Primary Election and that is held the second Tuesday in February. These are called stand-alone elections and the municipalities bear the costs for the election.
Other municipalities have now moved their elections to the General Election in even numbered years and their candidates are listed after the other non-partisan offices listed on the ballot. Referendum questions are listed after the state and county questions. Municipalities are permitted to move their elections by virtue of the passage of special legislation.
Notice is hereby given that the Municipal General Election for the City of Deerfield Beach, Broward County, Florida, will be held on Tuesday, March 9, 2021, to elect a candidate for City Commissioner in District 3; elected by district only. Below is Official Municipal Election SAMPLE Ballot
