Sun Sentinel: S. Florida: Poll sites closed in Broward but still open in Miami-Dade

South Florida voters waited in long lines hours after the polls were supposed to close.

In Broward County, all 778 precincts were closed about 10 p.m. About 500 people were still waiting to vote at three polling places about 9 p.m., said Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

“I don’t know of people being turned away,” Snipes said.

At 10 p.m. — three hours after polls closed — 174 of Miami-Dade’s 829 polling stations still had voters in line. The elections department sent some 150 optical scanners throughout the day to trouble precincts where long lines stretched for blocks.
