As election season approaches, Broward County residents are gearing up to exercise their civic duty. In a recent interview on Inside South Florida, Broward County Supervisor of Elections, Joe Scott, provided valuable insights into the preparations and procedures for the upcoming elections.

With the March 19 elections fast approaching, Joe Scott highlighted the extensive preparations underway at the Broward County Elections Office. Four cities are scheduled to hold their city elections alongside the Republican presidential primary, making it a pivotal event for local communities.

Notably, Broward County has witnessed shifts in voter party affiliations, with approximately 2,500 individuals switching to become Republicans in recent months. While this trend may raise questions, particularly regarding the upcoming primary elections, Joe Scott emphasized that voter motivations and behaviors can vary, especially in a closed primary state like Florida.

To address common questions and misconceptions about voting, Joe Scott emphasized the importance of educating the community on the available voting options. He highlighted three primary methods: voting by mail, in-person early voting, and traditional Election Day voting. Encouraging voters to explore these options, Joe Scott emphasized the convenience and flexibility offered by early voting, which allows voters to visit any designated polling site within Broward County.

In response to concerns about the integrity and security of the election system, Joe Scott reassured residents that Broward County's election procedures have been continuously strengthened and upgraded. Drawing upon the success of the 2020 elections, which were lauded as a model for the nation, Joe Scott emphasized the rigorous security measures in place to safeguard the voting process.

For those seeking more information or assistance, Joe Scott directed residents to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections website,, and encouraged them to utilize the office's phone line for inquiries and support. You can also visit their social media @BrowardVotes.
