More than 74-percent of Bay County voters turned out to vote.

Although that doesn't break the 1992 record of 82-percent, Supervisor of Elections Mark Anderson says it's still unusually high.

In 2000, only 50-percent of Bay County voters cast a ballot.

Anderson says the biggest problem they had on Election Day was voters going to the wrong precinct, because they failed to change their address with the election's office.

Still, Anderson says that problem is trivial compared to what happened in 2000.
