Republican VOTER GUIDE

IMPORTANT NOTES FROM RICHARD DENAPOLI, your BROWARD REPUBLICAN STATE COMMITTEEMAN:

I, Richard DeNapoli, your Broward Republican State Committeeman, have added some insights into the Broward GOP picks in (parentheses) below.

 

(Question: There are Democrat candidates on my ballot. How can I be sure this is a Republican ballot?

Answer: Your ballot, especially if you live in Hollywood, may start with the Clerk of the Circuit Court race. It is a universal primary where only Democrats have filed for the position and so Republicans and No-Party Affiliation voters can vote.  You will see "DEM" after each candidate on your ballot.  I can assure you that this is still a Republican ballot. 

(Depending on where you live in Broward, your ballot may start with different races.  I have included all the possible variations below.)

(Republican Congressional Primaries in Congressional Districts 20, 22 and 23:

If you live in these districts, these are contested Republican primaries.  The Broward Republican Party has not endorsed any candidates in these races.  I encourage you to choose your preferred candidate.)

(State Senate District 33 (Universal Primary Contest)

If you live in this District, this is a universal primary where only Democrats have filed for the position and so Republicans and No-Party Affiliation voters can vote.  The Broward Republican Party has not endorsed a candidate in this race.  You will see "DEM" after each candidate name. I can assure you this is still a Republican ballot.) 

(State Representative Districts 94, 95, 102 (Universal Primary Contest)

If you live in these Districts, these are universal primaries where only Democrats have filed for the position and so Republicans and No-Party Affiliation voters can vote.  The Broward Republican Party has not endorsed a candidate in this race.  You will see "DEM" after each candidate name. I can assure you this is still a Republican ballot.) 

(Republican Primaries in State Representative District 103 and 105

If you live in these districts, these are contested Republican primaries.  The Broward Republican Party has not endorsed any candidates in these races.  I encourage you to choose your preferred candidate.)

Clerk of the Circuit Court (Universal Primary Contest):
Mark A. Speiser*

 *(Every Republican in Broward will see this race on their ballot.)  In the Clerk of the Court race, it is a universal primary where only Democrats have filed for the position and so Republicans and No-Party Affiliation voters can vote.  (You will see "DEM" after each candidate on your ballot.  I can assure you that this is still a Republican ballot.  If you live in Hollywood your ballot might have this race as the first item on the ballot, but once again it is a Republican ballot.)  The Broward Republican Party believes Mark A. Speiser is the best candidate to replace the incumbent in this race.

Important Notes from Richard DeNapoli, Broward Republican State Committeeman, below:
 

I have added some insights into the Broward GOP picks in (parentheses) above.


All Judicial Races and School Board races are Non-Partisan, which means Party Affiliation will NOT appear on your ballot. All of the races are presented in order of their appearance on the ballot.
 

Universal Primary Contests:
There may be a number of "universal primary contests" on your ballot, meaning only Democrats are running for that particular position.  This means all parties can vote in these races, including Republicans and No-Party Affiliation voters, just like in a general election.  Sometimes it makes sense to make a strategic pick in these circumstances, as the Broward GOP has done in the Clerk of the Circuit Court race.

 

Republican Primaries: 
There may be a number of Republican primaries on your ballot that the Broward GOP has not made a recommendation in or may be prohibited by party rules from making a recommendation in such as the State Committeeman and State Committeewoman races, so none of these are referenced herein.
