City of Orlando, Orange County Election Supervisor to meet on Monday

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Board of Elections is holding a meeting on Monday to decide on a timeline for a special election to replace former Orlando Commissioner Regina Hill.


Hill represented District 5; she’s been suspected from her office while she faces a criminal investigation in connection with seven felony charges, including impersonation and mortgage fraud.

During the meeting, the board is expected to decide on budget, dates, and polling locations for the 21,000 voters who represent District 5.

So far, there is not an official timeline just yet.

The Orange County Supervisor of Elections said the office was getting a jump start to prepare for an upcoming special election.

The Board of Elections wants to make sure the city will be ready for the thousands of voters who will now have to choose another representative to fill the gap that Hill left.

“We’re following the process, so we’re just waiting for the process to fulfill itself,” said Glen Gilzean with the Orange County Supervisor of Elections.
