With nearly 370,000 “Vote by Mail” ballot requests already in process, Broward County election workers are preparing for the August 18 Florida Primary Election.
They held a mock election on Wednesday to test the accuracy of their voting equipment in reading a ballot.
Broward Supervisor of Elections Peter Antonacci says he expects a predominantly mail-in election due to concerns over COVID-19.
“We have about 370,000 ballot requests in hand and about 75,000 ballots received already,” Antonacci explains. “We expect to receive a heap of ballots from voters that will learn to enjoy voting from their kitchen table.”
The last day to request a “Vote by Mail” ballot in that county is August 8.
