WUCF TV examines Florida voting trends on Metro Center Outlook

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

Florida is just a month away from the November election.  This week on Metro Center Outlook, host Dr. Diane Trees sits down with political analyst Dr. Susan McManus and Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Mike Ertel to examine the trends in voting leading up to election day.

“Within Seminole County, more than half of the brand new registrants, people that registered this year so far in 2014, no party affiliation,” said Mike Ertel.  “And it’s coming from both sides.  Both parties are losing to the no party affiliation.”

While there are some big races on the ballot for November, including the race for Governor and the medical marijuana vote with Amendment 2, both experts predict turnout will be lower than the 2012 November election.

Metro Center Outlook airs each Sunday on WUCF TV at 9 a.m.
