Florida Votes

Florida voters headed to the polls Tuesday in the state's primary election. The election was mostly uneventful across Florida and that has many breathing a sigh of relief.

The state and elections have almost become synonymous with trouble following the last presidential election.

The term "hanging chad" went into widespread circulation following the most contentious presidential election in history.

Elections officials received no reports of major problems.

Touch screen machines are the state's solution to punch card ballots.

There were a number of hotly contested races in Northwest Florida.

One of them was for the democratic bid for Holmes County sheriff.

Former sheriff’s investigator Tim Brown challenged Incumbent Sheriff Dennis Lee, who’s vying for his third consecutive term.

With 100 of the precincts reporting, Dennis Lee wins and will face republican Johnny Whitaker in the November general election.
