Report on early voting in Florida

The Palm Beach Post reports that early voting in Florida went off smoothly, even with the natural intervention of Hurricane Ernesto.

Election officials told the paper that the number of voters was up and lines were down, due to higher numbers of early voting stations.

The Miami Herald, in contrast, writes that early voting “needs more tweaks.” The number of overlapping jurisdictions, as well as voters with language problems, confused some poll workers.
