May 1 (Orlando) — It’s Countdown to the City of Orlando Commission District 5 Run-Off Election. If you live in the district and are registered to vote, update your calendar to GO VOTE on Tuesday, May 6.
Actually, you can vote three ways: absentee ballot (if you have it already, just complete it and turn it in to the county elections office before the polls close on Tuesday), early vote (through today – Saturday, May 3) and at your polling place on election day.
Let your own voice be heard by casting your ballot for the candidate you want to see in office.
The upcoming run-off election is between Regina Hill and Juan Lynum. (Lynum got only 36 more votes than Hill during the April election which included third place candidate Cynthia Harris.) Long-term District 5 City Commissioner Daisy Lynum dropped out of the race to retire a few months before the April election.
Stay connected to Orlando Community News online. All election numbers are from the Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office.
The winner will take office on June 1, according to the city clerk’s office.
If you have any questions about voting in this run-off election, contact the city clerk’s office at (407) 246-2251.
