Sample Ballot for Run-Off Election

Section 10-3(d) of the Village’s Code of Ordinances establishes that in order for a candidate to be duly elected to office, said individual must receive a number of votes greater than fifty percent (50%) of the total number of ballot casts, if not, a Run-Off Election is necessary. 

A General Election was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020 in which the ballot instructed the electors to cast one vote for the candidates in the race for the seat of Vice Mayor. The total number of ballots casts for each candidate did not receive a number of votes greater than fifty percent (50%); thus, a Run-Off Election is scheduled for Tuesday, December 1, 2020. In the Run-Off Election, the candidate for Vice Mayor receiving the most votes shall be duly elected Vice Mayor. The newly elected shall be sworn in to office on Monday, December 7, 2020. 

All Vote-by-Mail Ballots for the Run-Off Election will be mailed by Miami-Dade Elections Department on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 and must be in the possession of the Elections Department by 7:00 PM on Election Day. No early voting shall be held. 

For additional information regarding the Run-Off Election, please contact the Village Clerk Missy Arocha at (305) 259-1234 or by email: clerk@palmettobay-fl.gov.
