Extra Day of Early Voting Costs Calculated:

City Manager says less than $20,000

Early voting continues Saturday and Sunday for the November 19 run-off election for three Commission seats. The City Commission added an extra day of voting which took place Friday. 
 
In a letter to Commissioners, City Manager Jimmy Morales calculated the costs of the extra day to be $18,641 which include:
 
  • $6,400 for an additional early voting day at two sites.
  • $6,273 for revised Logic & Accuracy and Canvassing Board schedule advertisement (English) published in the Miami Herald on November 13.
  • $1,000 for revised Logic & Accuracy and Canvassing Board schedule advertisement (Spanish) in El Nuevo Herald on November 13.
  • $3,506 for revised early voting dates (English) advertisement published in the Miami Herald on November 14.
  • $750 for revised early voting dates (Spanish) advertisement published in Hola Amigos on November 15.
 
Overtime costs for Miami-Dade Elections Department staff may be factored in to the costs but have yet to be determined, according to Morales’ letter.
