Long Lines As Floridians Turn Out For Early Voting

The South Florida SunSentinel reports:

Voters streamed to polling places in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties for the first day of Florida early voting. Many lined up before daybreak, anxious to get their ballots cast — undeterred by the weather, which ranged from heavy downpours to light sprinkles throughout the region.

Jose Sanchez, 54, of Fort Lauderdale, was at the front of the line at the early voting station in Wilton Manors. He arrived just before 5 a.m. and stood for two hours. “I want to make sure I get my vote in.” The wait, he said, was “absolutely well worth it.”

At the regional branch library west of Boca Raton, one voter reported via text at about 8 a.m., it was raining “and there’s still a long line.” Others posted video of lines on social media, including long lines at the Southwest Regional Library in Pembroke Pines.
