Broward and Palm Beach county elections offices report smooth Election Day

Low turnout. Quick results. No reported problems. Those were the themes Tuesday in local government elections in Broward and Palm Beach counties – the first voting since last year’s problem plagued midterm elections that made South Florida a national laughingstock.

Voters in 23 cities, towns and villages in the two counties picked new mayors, commissioners and council members, and decided on a range of referendum questions.

Low turnout, quick results

Turnout is almost always low in March municipal elections, and it was again on Tuesday.

Of the 438,829 people registered to vote in the Broward communities with elections, unofficial voter turnout was 9.49 percent. Palm Beach County’s elections website didn’t break out turnout.
