Political experts believe voter turnout could be at a historical low in South Florida, Local 10's Bob Norman reported Tuesday.
"I think think you're looking at 9, 9.5 percent," said Ron Gunzburger of Politics1.com. "There's very few competitive races on the ballot here in Broward, and those that are don't have much money to draw the attention of voters."
"You'd expect that adults would be a little bit more responsible than they're showing," said one poll worker.

Summer primary voters are typically marked by low turnouts, but not usually this low.
"I would say this is one of the slowest days that we've had," said Jeff Marano with the Police Benevolent Association, who was working as a poll worker.
"Politicians, they're all corrupt. It's the bankers that run everything, man. I don't care who gets elected, nothing is ever gonna change. That's why I'm not voting," said Jeff Bjorkman.
Don't tell that to James Wills, a pastor in Fort Lauderdale who has a son serving in the armed services.
"Not just my son, but for 200 years people have been dying so we have the right to vote, and we take it for granted, and there's countries in the world where people risk their lives to vote and we just stay home and watch television," said Wills.
