A municipal election will be held on March 14 to fill the commission seat in District C, currently held by Commissioner Sandra L. Welch. The three candidates who completed qualifying papers for District C during the candidate qualifying period are Patricia Louise Duaybes, Robert J. Miller and Sandra L. (Sandy) Welch.

Voting in the city is at-large, which means all qualified city voters are eligible to vote. Early voting is not available for this election, but absentee voting will be permitted through the Broward County Supervisor of Elections office. Visit browardsoe.org for additional information regarding registering to vote or obtaining an absentee ballot.

The re-elected and newly elected commissioners will be scheduled to be sworn into office at the next regularly scheduled city commission meeting after receipt of the certified election results. At that meeting, the annual election of the mayor and vice mayor among the five commissioners will take place.
