There was a Prospect Bend Annexation Proposition on the November 3 ballot in Broward County for those residents in the unincorporated area of Prospect Bend.

The city of Tamarac proposed the annexation of this area into their city, this is the third attempt to annex this area. The annexation has been met with apathy more than opposition, voters just do not care. A petition drive and an election last year were tried, but no one showed up to vote last time. This time around ballots were sent to those voters living in that area and the city of Tamarac are hoping they get the results they need this time around. Regardless of the vote, Prospect Bend may end up incorporated within Tamarac due to a state ruling that all incorporated areas must be within a city by 2010. No other city is looking to annex Prospect Bend, so city officials are positive this will turn in their favor.[1]
