General Election Summaries - Historical
The report series was derived from county data provided in response to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission Election Administration and Voting Survey (EAVS) for General Elections. Numbers for ballots cast specifically reflect voting history for all persons who voted or attempted to vote whether registered or not. While these summaries are no longer separately compiled, the links above provide direct access to the underlying datasets, reports, and Florida-specific data briefs relating to the EAVS.
