Officials tour U.S. Post Office in Opa-locka



Opa-Locka, Florida – Ahead of the special general election on Tuesday, Broward County Supervisor of Elections Joe Scott and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz toured the U.S. Post Office in Opa-Locka on Monday.

Six candidates are competing to become the new U.S. House Representative for District 20. The late Alcee Hastings assumed office on Jan. 3, 1993. He served until his death on April 6, 2021.

According to Scott said, the Nov. 2 Democratic primary was a tight race.

“We received 287 ballots that were postmarked before the date of the election, hundreds of ballots left uncounted,” Scott said.

With a difference of only five votes, Sheila Cherfilus-McCormick won the candidacy. Jason Mariner is the Republican candidate. The others are Mike ter Maat, Jim Flynn, Leonard Serratore, and Shelley Fain.

“We were asking about what steps they’ve taken to try to get to the bottom of how it happened,” said Wasserman Shultz.

The winner will be elected to a two-year term. The registration deadline was Dec. 13. Polls open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday.
