Section 100.071, Florida Statutes 2000

100.071  Grouping of candidates on primary ballots.--

(1)(a)  Where two or more similar offices are to be filled in the same election, the names of candidates shall be placed or printed upon the ballot or voting machine in groups or districts; that is, if two or more members of the Legislature or two or more members of a governing board are to be elected from the same geographical area, then the candidates' names shall be placed or printed on the ballot or voting machines in groups or districts, as the case may be.

(b)  The name of the office shall be printed over each numbered group or district, and each numbered group or district shall be clearly separated from the next numbered group or district, the same as in the case of single offices, so as to emphasize the necessity of voting for one candidate in each numbered group or district.

(2)  Each nominee of a political party chosen in the primaries shall appear on the general election ballot in the same numbered group or district as on the primary election ballot.
