Crist finds right polling place, votes yes on 2



Sp_296898_keel_earlyvote_8 ST. PETERSBURG -- Once he figured out his correct polling place -- even the top guy can get confused -- Gov. Charlie Crist voted yes today on Amendment 2, which seeks to define marriage in the Florida's Constitution as a union between a man and a woman. "I voted for it," Crist said outside the polling place. "It's what I believe in."

Crist arrived at the Coliseum in downtown St. Petersburg just after 10 a.m. after mistakenly going to the Mahaffey Theater to cast his ballot. "They changed my polling place," he said. "Today, I was very happy to find the right place."

Crist also applauded the high voter turnout in Florida.

"I wanted to express to my fellow Floridians of how proud I am of how they have comported themselves in this election process," Crist said. "Over 4-million have already voted in early voting."
