In a charming yet mathematically improbable deed, more than 100 percent of registered voters at the precinct covering UCF cast a ballot in the election, according to the Orange County supervisor of elections’ office.

Danaë Rivera-Marasco, the SOE's communications coordinator explained that a few voters switched their addresses on Election Day and moved into the precinct. When the book closed ahead of the election, the precinct had 754 people on the rolls. When the polls closed at 7 p.m., 795 ballots had been cast, or 105 percent.

That means every voter registered in Precinct 538 actually voted, a truly impressive accomplishment.
