KISSIMMEE, Florida - 78-year old Kissimmee resident Dick Lawton continues to patiently wait his turn to vote outside the Buenaventura Lakes Branch Library.
Even though a week has now passed since election day, Lawton remains vigilant that he has the chance to cast his vote.
Florida has been plagued by long voter lines and malfunctioning machines across the state, causing voters like Lawton to patiently wait their turn.
After arriving at his polling location around 4pm on election day, Lawton was expecting a bit of a wait, but nothing like this.
"I had hoped to get my vote in on Nov. 6th but I guess that wasn't meant to be," said Lawton. "The good news is I know they won't start counting the votes or declare a winner until everyone has had a chance to vote, so I look forward to getting home and watching the returns come in."
