Are you sure the second photo is Pompano Beach? It doesn’t look like either of the two sites open in Pompano.
That caption came from Obama For America, the campaign organization. I asked them about it after your comment and several e-mails. They said it was taken at the North Regional Library, which is actually in Coral Springs but has confused them because it has a Pompano Beach mailing address. I have changed the post. Thanks.
Lamberti looking good,Israel’s political is almost over once and for all. Israel is a sad unethical candidate for any political office. He’s at the polls still trying ro intimidate people and is a hot head. Not for me or anyone I know. What a jerk!!! How could anyone even let someone like that close to elected office. Please do not vote for Israel!!
In Broward, people are passionate about getting their vote in. I interviewed people today and was looking for Romney supporters but only found Obama supporters. I have to remember that it’s only because its Broward where voters are primarily democrat.
who really cares who they vote for, just vote
but only vote ONCE
as to israel, I WAS going to vote for him (A vote NOT for lamberti) after getting info on israel from a neighbor, but now intend to skip that vote entirely
Went to vote in pompano. Was handed a “blue” card stating “democrats”. I then see Bob Nichols and Gonzalez on the card. Knowing both are Republicans (Bob Nichols a tea party guy)I inquired. Was told they made the card up. your both going to make fine judges…….
I’m a D and I voted for R. It would be nice to have some money left for my retirement and not kick the grandchildren to the curb. Never mind have the Earth blown to pieces by some nuclear muslin extremist bomber. (Thanks to the big O-bama)
went to vote and the line was so long thaT I LEFT, DONT THESE PEOPLE WORK
….. most were working age and they can spend hours in line, i guess when you get something for nothing from the government why not wait.
to ‘Christine” say it ain’t so your a Republican. Do you want the gov’t telling you what to do w/ your reproductive organs? come on. I was so impressed w/ your grammar, vocabulary etc. I mean Robert walsh doesn’t kill babies here but its up to you gals to make that decesion, not the Gov’t. Huh to the late Bernie walsh, huh two(2) children out of wedlock whos mother(not mine) wanted to have a ‘procudure” .I put one up on one end of Clearwater Beach, and the other on the other end. 100 bucks for each hotel efficiency(don’t forget this was almost 30yrs ago-you should have seen me.) They both gave birth to two (2) healthy boys. Who one is now calling me for 25grand to get married. Marrying a Jewish girl , boy we have come a long way i told Shawn Patrick, you courting a Jewish gilr(mind you he was conceived in the back seat of an 85 oldsmobile). So there you have it. No vote for mitt Romney. Cut plan parenthood. Fine every Mormon- pays double in taxes. That will fix him…. Vote Pres.Obama. to much at stake to start over.. Christine you vote for Pres.Obama. at least he will stay out of your Vaginia……
In 2008, there were about 252,000 early votes, about 136,000 absentee ballots, and about 346,000 election day votes, for a grand total of 740,000 votes (73% of all registered voters). Early voting went on for 14 days, vs. only 8 days in 2012. Average early votes per day was 18,000 in 2008, versus over 28,000 early votes per day on 2012. That’s a 56% increase in early votes per day.
C’mon women absolutely do have a choice! They can decide whether to have sex or not, use contraception or not. And sorry Walsh, but I do think an optional health care plan provided by the employer ( you don’t have to buy into it, you don’t have to work for that employer) absolutely has the right to decide if they will pay for murder or not.
When you get a little older and a little more mature, you’ll understand the true value of life!
Memo from GOP campaign adviser to candidate, leaked by WPTV: “The early and absentee turnout is starting to look more troubling. As of yesterday, Republicans made up only 22% of early voters and 30% of returned absentee votes. This is closer to (and worse than) 2008 where we saw 19% EV and 38% of the absentees. 2010 (our blowout year) was 33% of EV and 45% of AB. Conclusion: the Democratic turnout machine in the county [Palm Beach] has been very effective and they are cleaning our clock.”
The Sheriff’s race is the ugliest of all the local races! In my opinion, this position is a professional one. The behavior of the candidates running for this office is far from being professionals, just the opposite! I voted the first day of Early Voting, and I did NOT vote for either candidate. This is the first for me……….
Wow, the early voting volume just keeps getting stronger! Today’s Broward County total is 32,017 early voters, for a grand total of 174,337 early voters so far. Two more days of early voting left. Go Democrats!!!
In 2008, there were 24 additional hours of early voting time. The Republican state legislature cut the early voting hours by 20% for the 2012 election.
Right now there are many early voting locations with 3, 3-1/2, and even 4 hour wait times. So the number of early votes today should equal or exceed yesterday’s 35,904.
Adding another 35,904 to the grand total of 210,236 gives 246,140 as the estimated final number of early votes. The 2008 total was about 252,000 early votes. That would be 97.7% of the 2008 early vote, cast within only 80% of the 2008 early voting hours!!
well its all over but the shouting. go vote on tuesday. the lines won’t be long and the ballots will be ready
one of the reasons why early voting took so long as they had to PRINT YOUR BALLOT once they figured your precinct/city. I understand there were about a dozen different ballots. and in 4 languages as well.
The accelerated pace of early voting continued on the last day of early voting; 38,298 voters cast their early ballots today!!
The grand total is 248,534. That’s 21.73% of the registered voters in Broward County. And that’s 98.6% of the early vote total from 2008, despite the Republican legislature’s 24-hour cut to the early voting hours which left the 2012 electorate with only 80% of the early voting hours enjoyed by the 2008 electorate.
2008 early voting was 251,929 + 174 provisional ballots that got counted, for a final total of 252,103.
The total number of ballots cast in 2008 was 739,861 (out of 1,008,836 registered voters), a turnout rate of 73.34%.
The 2012 registered voter total is 1,143,484 – that’s a 13.3% increase relative to the 2008 electorate. The Obama campaign has been aggressively registering new voters for more than a year now.
While voters stood waiting to vote for SEVEN HOURS at the Tamarac library, there were many Broward libraries that did not even participate in early voting!!!
The Sunrise Branch Library, the Lauderhill Branch Library, the Lauderdale Lakes Branch Library, and many others could have also offered early voting, but did not.
Why didn’t the Supervisor of Elections expand the number of early voting location to include all (or nearly all) of the Branch Libraries, especially given the large reduction in early voting hours and the large increase in the number of registered voters?
