Broward voters rush to cast their ballots on Election Day (includes video story)

Individuals surrounded the Hallandale Beach Community Center this morning to get their votes in for this year’s midterm election.

The doors opened at 7 a.m. with a line of people starting to form by 6:45 am. Local governors, political campaign staff, elderly and youth made up the crowd at the prescient. 

“It’s the greatest gift we get living in America. We can affect change during the voting process,” said Gary Sarner, Broward County voter.

While many left the prescient content with their vote, others had an unfortunate experience.

“[It was] horrible because they changed my precinct without notification and now I got to run 45 minutes out West to vote. This is autocracy at its best, and that’s what we’re voting against,” said James Braverman, a Broward County voter.

Voters can cast their ballot until doors close at 7 p.m.
