By R. Michael Brown, Civic Association Communications Director -- The results for the Primary Election on August 28, 2018 for candidates on ballots in Palm Beach are shown below.

Palm Beach turnout at the polls on Tuesday was very light and we're still waiting to hear about overall turnout and specific results from precincts in Town.  However, the Civic Association Online Voters Guide showed over 14,400 views so there was tremendous interest in the Primary Election. 

Now that the primaries are over, major races will be for U.S. Senate between Rick Scott [R] and Bill Nelson [D] and for Governor between Ron DeSantis [R] and Andrew Gillum [D].  To learn more about the candidates, read their bios and visit their websites by going to the Civic Association Online Voters Guide.
