Why every vote counts; it's all in the numbers
Currently there are seven candidates in District 2 that reside in zip code 33133 - one candidate that resides in 33129 - and one candidate that resides in 33132.
As of January 2015 there were - 11,630 registered voters in zip code 33133. In the 2011 District 2 election - 1,897 registered voters from zip code 33133 cast their votes - 16% voter turnout for 33133.
Out of the - 1,897 votes casted from 33133 in 2011, Sarnoff received - 948 votes - 50% - of the 33133 votes.
If we see a similar trend in 2015 that we saw in 2011, the remaining 50% of the 33133 voters will be split amongst the six candidates that reside in 33133 (Simpson, Palomino, Sklarey, Armbrister, Russell, Gonzalez) one candidate from 33129 (Solares) and one candidate from 33132 (Woods).
Based on my observations; a successful District 2 campaign will be the one that focuses on the entire district and all its 33 precincts.
With over 41,000 registered voters in District 2 and a dismal voter turnout in 2011, candidates will need to focus on issues that resonate with the entire district. Position district wide solutions that will motivate more constituents to take an interest in the future of our district and thus offset the trends of 2011.
