This year, many of the county’s 800-plus precincts had polling places in the clubhouses and administrative buildings of Waterfront Properties’ key communities, especially Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens.

Throngs of anxious and well-intentioned voters headed to the Palm Beach County polls Tuesday to cast their ballots in one of the most important elections in a generation.

Not only did South Florida voters elect a president and a vice president, they also made decisions on 11 constitutional amendments that involved real-estate issues including selective homestead exemptions and property-tax cuts. Other amendments proposed changes to public funding of religious institutions, health care and the public university system’s Board of Governors.

The ballot, six giant pages that barely fit inside the voting booth, was the longest in state history, several supervisors of elections said. That led to long lines in some polling places because of the amount of time it took to read the verbose amendments. Waterfront Properties and Club Communities Managing Partner Rob Thomson urged clients, agents and employees to get out and vote and take their time casting their ballots.

This year, many of the county’s 800-plus precincts had polling places in the clubhouses and administrative buildings of Waterfront Properties’ key communities, especially Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens. In Jupiter, precinct 1076 voted in the clubhouse at The Island at Abacoa. Abacoa is a residential development east of Interstate 95 and north of Donald Ross Road.

Also in Jupiter, precinct 1140 voted at The Club at Admiral’s Cove. Admiral's Cove is a large community of single-family homes that grace the Intracoastal Waterway.

In Palm Beach Gardens, precinct 1192 voted in the clubhouse at Evergrene, a gated community whose amenities include a putting green, a restaurant and a bar, and a resort-style swimming pool.
