Sign Up and Vote Naked! PBCHRC Voters Alliance Endorsements

Why wait in line at the polls 
to cast your ballot
on March 17?


As a Palm Beach County voter, you may vote
in the privacy of your own home.  
But first, you must obtain a vote-by-mail ballot.

The deadline to request that a Vote-by-Mail ballot be mailed to you for the March 17, 2020, election is no later than 5:00 p.m. on March 7, 2020.  (If you miss the deadline, you can visit any of the offices of the Supervisor of Elections and they will print a mail ballot for you. Or you can vote in person during Early Voting or on Election Day.)

You may request for a Vote-by-Mail ballot
Your Vote-by-Mail ballot may be sent to your legal residence address, permanent mailing address or a temporary address. When sending a Vote-by-Mail ballot to an address not on file with the Florida Voter Registration System (such as your college address), the request must be in writing and signed by the voter. The online mail ballot request service system will notify you if the address is not already on file and you will be prompted to print, sign and submit your request to our office. Written signed requests may be made by mail, fax (561) 656-6230, or as an attachment to email votebymail@pbcelections.org.

Vote-by-mail return envelopes 
finally have prepaid postage, 
so there is no need to use stamps!

If you receive a vote-by-mail ballot and wish to vote in person on Election Day, you MUST bring your ballot to the polls and turn it over to the poll workers before you can vote.

To track the status of your vote-by-mail ballot request from the time you submit it until the voted ballot is returned to the Office of the Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections, go to the free Online Ballot tracking system by clicking here and following the easy directions. 

Since 1988, the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council Voters Alliance (PBCHRCVA) has interviewed more than 1,000 candidates and has made endorsements in hundreds of races for public office. LGBTQ and allied voters have relied on our endorsements to elect candidates who, in turn, have enacted 135 laws and policies  benefiting the LGBTQ community. (There probably are more LGBTQ-supportive laws and policies in effect in Palm Beach County than in all of Florida's other 66 counties combined!) 

PBCHRCVA has been conducting face-to-face endorsement interviews with candidates for federal, state and local offices. PBCHRCVA endorsements are based on how a candidate has supported the local LGBTQ community. For candidates who hold (or have held) public office, we also consider how those candidates have voted on LGBTQ issues.

The following candidates have been endorsed by The Palm Beach County Human Rights Council Voters Alliance for election or re-election.  

Boca Raton Mayor - Scott Singer

Boynton Beach City Commission (Dist. 2) - Woodrow Hay
Boynton Beach City Commission (Dist. 4) - Ty Penserga

Delray Beach City Commission (Seat 2) - William Bathurst
Delray Beach City Commission (Seat 4) - Shirley Johnson

Haverhill Town Council (Seat 2) - Ray Caranci

Jupiter Town Council (Dist. 1) - Wayne Posner

Please note: PBCHRCVA has not made endorsements in every race
and not all of the listed candidates
will appear on your ballot.

PBCHRCVA is not only relying on you to vote in the upcoming election, we are also counting on you to share this e-mail with LGBTQ and allied voters, so progress on our issues can continue to be made.
This paid electioneering communication, which is independent of any party, candidate or committee, is produced, sponsored and paid for by the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council Voters Alliance.
