Election Results

Definitely the normal mixed bag for local elections.

Reelected were the Sheriff, the Tax Collector, the Judge, and the School Board Member.

We have a new Public Defender, Superintendent of Schools, and two new white guys on the County Comission to replace the two white guys who didn’t seek reelection.

The Sheriff’s contest received the most votes, 34,138, which represents 27.6% of the registered voters.

The County has 123,539 registered voters with about 60% registered as Republican, 20% Democrat, and 20% Other affiliation.

Since most of the County elected positions are filled by these low turn-out ‘primary’ elections, about 20% of the voters get to choose the officials.

The entire state uses Clarity Elections to report the Official Results. This was owned by a Tampa company, SOE Software, but they were bought by a Spanish corporation, SCYTL, at the first of the year.

“… and 20% Other affiliation.”


When it comes to elections, Florida may not have accuracy, it may not have probity, but it damn well has Clarity… en Español, no less!

Clarity has contracts with 14 states, and some penetration in 12 more. Given the results from recent elections, people should take a long look at the SOE Software that is being used.

Yeah, all of the radical elements are under the heading of Other – liberals, Greens, etc.
