In a printing plant just west of Miami International Airport, every second counts: It means three more ballots ready for the Nov. 6 election.

From 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., five days a week, Miami-Dade county’s printing press is churning out 100 ballot variations, each offering a different combination of candidates and questions to correspond with where voters live. The county’s online list of everything and everyone up for a vote stretches to 76 pages. Every item is printed in English, Spanish and Creole.

The special election in Senate District 40 will go on as planned on Tuesday, September 26 despite calls from Democratic-leaning groups for a delay.

The district is in Miami-Dade County, where many residents lost power during Hurricane Irma.

Miami-Dade school board member Raquel Regalado says she is running for Miami-Dade County mayor.

The 40-year-old Regalado filed the paperwork on Monday. She’ll challenge incumbent Carlos Gimenez, who has held the office since 2011.

Regalado says Gimenez is out of touch with county voters.

“I think that a lot of the decisions that are being made at the county have more to do with who comes to visit the mayor, and what ideas they have; what lobbyists bring what proposals," she says.
