Broward County Question Could be Easily Missed

sfl-mayo-children-ballot-2014 Broward County voters are cautioned to read their ballots carefully. The Children’s Service Council  ballot question is hard to find, and easily skipped, as it is placed beneath state Amendment 3 in the lower corner on the reverse side of page one.

There are FOUR items on the reverse side of page. If you are voting early with an absentee ballot and make a mistake, do NOT cross it out or use correction fluid. YOU CAN APPLY FOR ANOTHER ABSENTEE BALLOT, or vote at one of twenty early voting sites, or on Election Day, November 4.
