Election Day is Coming
Vol. 3, No. 18 9 September 2022
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8
This year's voters will select representatives for a number of governmental seats. South Miami has three openings on its Commission: one for Mayor and two for Commissioners.
In addition there are five referendums which may change South Miami's Charter. While the Commission supports all of these changes, it does not have the power to change the Charter. The City's voters are the ones that make Charter decisions. For instance, on the 2020 ballot of the last national election there was a referendum to move South Miami's election day from February to the November national election day. The electorate voted to do so, which is why, this year, the Commission members will be selected in about seven weeks.
If you are like me, you do not want to spend a lot of time in the voting booth reading through the ballot. You can find the Official SAMPLE BALLOT (in orange) for South Miami on the City's website: https://southmiamifl.gov/130/Elections. All five of the referendums are posted there, after you scroll past the candidates.
