If you live in Senate District 33 and/or House District 103, you should have received an official sample ballot in the mail for the February 8 Special Primary Election. All registered voters in House District 103 can cast their vote for either Erhabor Ighodaro, Sharon Pritchett or Barbara Watson. This seat is vacant because the incumbent, Rep. Oscar Braynon II, resigned to run for the Senate 33 seat vacated by Frederica Wilson, elected to the U.S. House of Representatives during the 2010 mid-term elections in November. There are no Republican candidates for this seat.
Registered Democrats in Senate District 33 can cast their vote for Oscar Braynon II, Phillip J. Brutus, James Bush III or Darryl Franklin Reaves. The winner of that race will face Republican Joe Celestin on March 1 in the Special General Election.

2455 NW 183rd Street
