The 2023 City of Miami Beach elections are nearly here, with early voting beginning October 23 and the last day to vote on November 7 (unless there is a Run-Off). This post is your Democratic Voters Guide. Bookmark it, share and check for updates periodically!
We will be voting for the following City of Miami Beach offices:
- City Commission, Group 4
- City Commission, Group 5
- City Commission, Group 6
We've got a great group of Democrats running for these seats: Michael Gongora, Mike Grieco, Tanya Katzoff Bhatt and Mitch Novick. Electing Democrats at the local level "builds the bench" and pays dividends towards future electoral success. We encourage you to support Dems in every election!
