Something very strange happened in Broward County.
I've never seen a top-of-the-ticket U.S. Senate race get fewer votes than EVERY OTHER statewide election.

So more voters wanted to weigh in on governor AND attorney general AND state CFO AND agriculture commissioner?
How can the US Senate race have MORE votes statewide than the three Florida Cabinet races but FEWER votes in Broward?

The likely culprits: either poor ballot design (Sen race was tucked below instructions near the bottom corner of the first of many pages) or tabulation error
Though there are issues in Broward, we can't say it cost Sen Nelson the race

Nelson's trailing by 17,344 votes (.021%) statewide

BUT IF the Brow gov race totals were applied to the Sen race but vote share remained constant, Nelson trails by 7,483 (0.09%)

So this is big
This is what the Broward ballot looked like. The Senate race is just above the bottom lefthand corner
