The Spanish translation of the Broward County ballot asks voters for a lot. On the question of increasing the tax rate, the request for a “mill” was translated into “million,” the Sun Sentinel reports.
The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Thursday said an updated translation of the school ballot would be included in mail-in ballots and posted at all voting booths.
The school district is asking voters to increase taxes from the current half-mill to a full mill for safety enhancements, teacher recruitment and retention. That Spanish ballot also misstated what the increased taxes would buy, the Sun Sentinel said.
