Florida, where there was a contentious Republican primary and a fake Democratic one, turned out to be the first state with contests in both parties where more Republicans turned out.
The turnout figures on both sides, however, far exceeded recent totals, demonstrating again the remarkable interest in this presidential race.
With 99 percent of precincts reporting, more than 1.9 million Republicans voted on Tuesday, compared to about 700,000 in 2000, when there was the last contested GOP primary.
More than 1.7 million Democrats went to the polls, even though none of the candidates campaigned in the state and no delegates were at stake. That is far more than the 754,000 in 2004 and the 552,000 in 2000.
