FL: An 'Eerily Quiet' Record Day

By David A. Fahrenthold
Florida seems likely to break its record for voter turnout, set when 83 percent of the electorate voted during the 1992 presidential election, Florida Secretary of State Kurt Browning said this afternoon. The Tallahassee Democrat reported that Browning said the election was proceeding smoothly, despite scattered problems with jammed scanners in Tallahassee and misprinted ballots in Hollywood, Fla.

"I almost hate to say this, but it's been eerily quiet and that's a good thing," Browning said, according to the Democrat.

He said that "significant" unofficial results should be available between 9:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. tonight.

I have blogged for hours on an international live blog with mostly young participants here and abroad. While there is a great deal of interest around the world in our election, there is also confusion about the electoral system here. Ah, well, I think that there is confusion about the way the system works in this country as well.
