There was a pretty big election on Aug. 30 — Miami-Dade residents voted for the county mayor, three commission seats, a bunch of federal and state representatives, school board members, and county and circuit judges. But even though there were plenty of names on the ballots, there weren’t that many people actually out at the polls.
We hit the streets the day after winners were announced to find out if Miamians had voted, and if so, had they tuned in later to hear the results? We also wanted to find out if locals knew who the county mayor was.
But everyone knew at least one thing for certain: they want to see change in their community, from curbing homelessness and gun violence to easing traffic.
