Dear god: 18 years after the butterfly ballot in Broward costs Dems the WH, Broward uses a ballot that leads 24.000 people to not vote in the Senate election? WTF Fla Dems?https://t.co/jwoK1Ijneg

The difference was nearly even between the Republican and Democratic candidates.
Gillum received more than 10,200 votes than Nelson, while DeSantis also received more than 10,400 votes than Scott.
Some voters said that they don’t remember seeing the Senate race on their ballots or that they almost missed it.
For the midterms, Broward’s discrepancy among the number of votes wasn’t just in the Senate and governor races.
More people in Broward voted for the state’s commissioner of agriculture, chief financial officer and attorney general positions than they did for the Senate, according to the preliminary county results.
