Election Day: Lake Worth votes on new mayor

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

LAKE WORTH, FL (WFLX) - Voters across the country are casting ballots. Tuesday's elections are big for the Obama Administration -- especially in New Jersey and Virginia where voters will elect a new governor.

The outcome of both races could shed light on how next year's critical "mid-term" contests will shape up. They're also often seen as a reflection of the President and his politics.

Polls also open locally as several city elections take place Tuesday. A few we are watching closely: the race for Lake Worth mayor and seats on Lake Worth and Ft. Pierce City Commission.

Polls are open until 7 p.m. Tuesday. For a complete breakdown of all the races in our area, go to PBCElections.org and SLCElections.org.

Here's a list of candidates for Lake Worth Mayor:

  • William Coakley
  • Javier Del Sol
  • John Jordan
  • Laurence McNamara
  • Loretta Sharpe
  • Rene A. Varela
