2022 Special Election & Special Primary Elections

Hi Broward Voters, I’m Joe Scott, and I’m proud to serve as your Supervisor of Elections.

My office has been working diligently all year to prepare for the upcoming 2022 Election Cycle, including the Special Elections to fill vacant seats in U.S. Congressional District 20, State Senate District 33, and State House District 94.

We are sending you this newsletter to provide you with all the information and resources you will need to be an educated voter in January 2022. The recent November 2, 2021 Special Primary Election was decided by only 5 votes. That is all the evidence anyone should need to understand that their vote matters, and their vote counts!

Our entire team is ready and available to answer all your questions and give you the most updated, correct, and factual information that you can trust to be 100% accurate.

We welcome you to visit our website, It’s another great source of information to educate yourself on anything else you might want to know regarding upcoming elections. I am so excited to inspire and facilitate your participation in the electoral process! Have a safe and happy holiday season, from our SOE Family to yours!

A vote-by-mail ballot refers to a ballot that you request or have delivered to you without having to vote at the polls during early voting or on Election Day. A voter must first be registered to vote before he or she can request a vote by-mail ballot. Effective May 6, 2021, a request to receive a vote-by-mail ballot covers all elections through the end of the calendar year for the next ensuing regularly scheduled general election, and voters must also provide verifiable identifiers to our office to request vote-by-mail ballots, and all requests must be signed. If a vote-by-mail ballot is returned undeliverable, it will cancel a request for future elections and must be re-requested by the voter or designee.

A vote-by-mail ballot can be returned by mail or hand delivered in person. Please return your voted ballots as early as possible, to ensure timely delivery. If returned by mail, it can be returned by the United States Postal Service or through another private or commercial carrier the ballot must be received by 7pm on Election Day.

Vote-by-mail ballots may also be deposited into secure drop boxes at Supervisor of Elections’ main and branch offices until 7:00pm (local time) on Election Day. Vote-by-mail ballots may also be deposited at secure drop boxes at early voting sites.

Early voting is defined as “casting a ballot prior to Election Day at a location designated by the Supervisor of Elections and depositing the voted ballot in to the Tabulator.”

Voters can go to any Early Voting Site to cast their ballot. Voters may also hand-deliver their voted vote-by-mail ballots to secured ballot drop boxes at the same sites during Early Voting.

Voters who want to vote early should remember to bring a photo and signature identification with them.
