December 3, 2019 (Orlando) – It’s Election Day in the City of Orlando. If you live in District 6, go to your polling place and vote, if you haven’t already voted early or voted by mail-in ballot.
This is a Run-off election between Bakari Burns and Gary Siplin. They want to be your city commissioner so Goggle them or ask somebody about them, choose one and go vote!
Every vote counts! Their race is in a run-off election because no one got a majority of the votes in the city’s most recent election. (Burns got 46% of the votes, Siplin got 39%, Lawanna Gelzer got 14%). A little over 200 votes separated Burns and Siplin.)
So people – remember to vote today, if you live in city limits and in District 6 – which includes a huge chunk of the southwest portion of the city.
Orlando Commissioners are elected from six respective districts. The commissioners are elected for four-year terms. The District 6 commission seat was formerly held by long-time commissioner Sam B. Ings, who ran in the mayoral race but lost.
If you’re registered to vote but not sure what district you live in or go to the Orange County Supervisor of Elections website – http://www.ocfelections.com or call the elections office: (407) 836-2070.
Now is not the time to stay home! #YourVoteisYourVoice
