Chad is running for Supervisor of Elections to modernize the office, restore confidence in the voting process and ensure there is uniformity in process such that every function of the elections office has a procedure or manual that, when feasible, is made publicly available so the office can be held accountable. He personally drove 4,000 miles to visit each of the 67 Florida county elections offices and find best practices to bring back to Broward.
