Election Aftermath

November 8th, 2006 by Mike Vasilinda

Officials at the state elections office are breathing a sigh of relief now that the voting is through. Spokesman Sterling Ivey says less than half of the registered voters turnout out for Tuesday’s election… but that was a vast improvement over the September primary.

“We felt voter turnout probably is going to end up being in the 40 percent range across the state, which is pretty low, but very remarkable in that we had a 19 percent turnout in the primary up to a 40% turnout in the general election. Everything went very smooth and we’re very proud of how Floridians participated in the process and supervisors managed their elections.

Final urnout was 46 percent. There were some minor glitches at precincts around the state, but for the most part the voting went off without a hitch. Each of the county election supervisors will be submitting their vote tallies to the state this weekend, but it won’t be official until the state canvassing board has signed off on the totals.
