BEFORE YOU GO ….

Early voting started October 20 and lasts until November 2. Turnout is
going to be high. On October 20, 11,223 people voted in Broward County.

For those of you planning to vote early, the lines are long. It may take
1 to 2 hours to get to vote. You can vote at Pompano Beach Library at
1213 East Atlantic Blvd. (that’s 13th Street and Atlantic Blvd.)

If you decide to go, take a folding chair of some sort if
you are not strong enough to stand on your feet for a long time.
For those who are truly disabled, the poll watchers may issue
a ticket that will allow you to sit inside the building until your
number is called. Once inside, the process moves along well from
computer sign in until the ballot is inserted into the optical
reader. If you make an error in filling in the line between arrows.
you may request a new ballot and try again. REMEMBER you may only
make this request three times. AFTER the third ballot, YOU WILL NOT
BE ALLOWED TO VOTE ANYWHERE IN THIS NOV. 4th election.

For those of you who may have a hand that trembles or perhaps eyesight
problems, here is one further remedy! At the computer sign in, you may
request
that a friend or spouse be designated to go into the booth with you
and make sure that you have voted as you planned to. You and the other
person will have to fill out a form requesting this assistance and
both of you will have to sign this form. The above will be true whether
you vote early or in your own precinct on NOV. 4th.

Thanks to a faithful reader….for passing this on…
