Races throughout Palm Beach Co. for Election Day

Races throughout Palm Beach Co. for Election Day

Tuesday is Election Day for a lot of towns, villages and cities in Palm Beach County, and we're watching them closely.

One race in particular could signal a big shift in politics and it's in Riviera Beach.

District 4 Councilwoman Dawn Pardo is seeking re-election. Pardo is one of three council members who voted to fire former city manager Jonathan Evans, who recently announced his intent to sue the city for the mishandling of his firing. 

On Tuesday, voters will find out if their feverish energy about the topic will be enough to push the incumbent out. Pardo has received backlash from people who thought it was the wrong move.

Pardo is being challenged by Julie Botel, a former educator. Botel is among a group of vocal supporters who wanted Evans rehired and is calling for more transparency in the city.

Anyone who lives in Riviera Beach and registered to vote can participate in the election. District 2, which is filled by Chairwoman KaShamba Miller-Anderson, is also up for grabs. Miller-Anderson is facing Keith Golden in the election.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Voters must bring a valid identification to their polling precinct.

Elections are also being held in Atlantis, Belle Glade, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Greenacres, Haverhill, Highland Beach, Juno Beach, Lake Worth, Loxahatchee Groves, North Palm Beach, Ocean Ridge, Pahokee, Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Riviera Beach, Royal Palm Beach, South Bay, South Palm Beach, Tequesta, Wellington and West Palm Beach.
