Municipalities’ election information is not posted by the Broward Supervisor of Elections office on its website, except for a table (CLICK HERE) with the date each municipality will hold its’ elections.
On this page below, we have included links to election information pages on municipal websites for each Broward County municipality. Many of the links go to the municipal clerk’s web page. Sometimes a link is posted on the municipal clerk’s web page for specific election information (like the date of the election). This information may include only campaign financial reports and filing documents with no actual list of candidates. There may be specific links to specific years somewhere on each page as well.
The following municipalities do not post election information on their websites as of November 5, 2016: Hillsboro Beach, Lauderdale-By-The Sea, Lazy Lake, Pembroke Park, and Sea Ranch Lakes. Lazy Lake and Sea Ranch Lakes do not have municipal websites.
Broward County has a list of all the contact information (including the municipal websites) for each municipality online (CLICK HERE).
There will be municipal elections held during the general election on November 8, 2016. Not all municipalities hold their elections in November, some hold them in March. The next Municipal Election will be held on March 14, 2017. The following municipalities will hold their elections on that date: Coconut Creek, Deerfield Beach, Hillsboro Beach, Lighthouse Point, Miramar, and Sea Ranch Lakes. The filing deadline for this election is January 13, 2017.
All municipal elections are non-partisan. That means the candidate cannot tell you their party affiliation. It is not illegal for any political party or partisan group to put out a palm card with the candidate’s party affiliations. The Dolphin Democrats usually post the party affiliations of all candidates in municipal elections on our website. CLICK HERE to go to the candidates page for the November 8, 2016 election with candidate questionnaires and party affiliations.
If the link is not working for your city, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can correct the link. The date of the next election is shown next to the link to its elections website.

MARCH 14, 2017 MUNICIPAL CANDIDATES
Incumbents are indicated by a “*”
Some municipalities (Coconut Creek, Deerfield Beach, and Miramar) have posted financial reports for the election, so we are able to identify some candidates. We have listed the incumbents, even though in some cases they have not submitted financial reports yet. We have not asked them if they are not running, and some of these municipalities have not posted the names of any candidates for the March 14, 2017 election as yet. This page will be updated as the filing deadline approaches (January 13, 2017).
