Miami Lakes voters have approved a charter amendment that makes all of the town’s elected positions at-large instead of district-specific.
The results of the mail-in special election were announced Tuesday night.
Of the ballots cast, 1,372 votes (54.86 percent) were in favor of the measure, while 1,129 (45.14 percent) opposed the change.
By removing district restrictions, Miami Lakes residents can now run for any open local position regardless of where in the town they live.
Mayor Michael Pizzi said the charter change was a positive for the town.
"There is no downside to it," Pizzi said. "Miami Lakes is a small town, and everybody should care about the whole town, not just their neighborhood."
