Today, Floridians are casting their ballots at more than 6,000 precincts around the state with no major problems so far. That's according to Florida's top elections official, Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who says, as many as 50 percent of voters might have already cast their ballots before election day. 

By the time polls opened this morning, 4.5 million Floridians had already cast absentee or early votes. And today, he says, turnout continues to be strong in this highly anticipated election.
