It's an off-off-election year, but there are some important decisions being made Tuesday in four Miami-Dade cities. Polls opened at 7 a.m. in Hialeah, Homestead, Miami and Miami Beach. Thousands have already voted early or by mail, but turnout today could prove the difference between a ballot item passing or a candidate winning outright.
In Miami, where political dynasties are jockeying for power, voters are electing a new mayor, two new city commissioners, and deciding the fate of a $400 million general obligation bond and several charter amendments.
In Miami Beach, where a corruption probe and allegations of indecent exposure have made for a, ahem, lively election season, voters are also naming a new mayor, deciding two city commission races (here and here), and considering several ballot amendments, including a 2 a.m. ban on liquor sales on Ocean Drive.
