Last Friday, former President Bill Clinton acknowledged to a crowd of Charlie Crist supporters a major challenge: to get voters, specifically in South Florida, out for the non-presidential election this Nov. 4.

Clinton was speaking at a downtown Miami hotel. He talked about the need for a Florida governor who will support key Democrat issues -- expanding Medicaid, preparing for rising seas and increasing the minimum wage -- but stressed the public's role in the election.

No long lines and quiet polling places are what most South Florida voters can expect so far during the primary election on Tuesday.

For most Democratic voters, the highlight of this election is getting to choose who will run against Republican Gov. Rick Scott in November: Charlie Crist or Nan Rich. But there are local races on the ballot, and some voters are finding it’s wise to go into the voting booth with a plan.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist says if he’s elected, he wants a special session to expand a state-run health insurance program for the poor and disabled.

Crist says Florida could cover an additional one million people by expanding Medicaid under the federal Affordable Care Act.

Gov. Rick Scott spent Monday touring high-tech South Florida companies looking to hire.

He wants to make sure firms like Boca Raton's Modernizing Medicine, which designs electronic medical record systems, have workers ready.

“I’ve got kids and even... grandkids – the jobs of the future are going to be science, technology, engineering and math-related," said Scott, a Republican. "So we need to do workforce training in those areas.”
