Florida’s Department of State is launching a new election results website called Florida Election Watch at enight.elections.myflorida.com.

According to a DOS press release,

a week in advance of the Primary Election, voters can try the new site, including the new tool MyElectionTracker, which allows the voter to select specific races and track those results. The site also provides the new option of viewing the races by county.

On election night, visitors to the main Division of Elections website will be automatically sent to the Florida Election Watch site; however, they can get back to the regular Division site through a link in the top banner. Election results will begin posting after 8 pm EDT to accommodate voting in the central time zone counties.
