JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Duval County went for Gov. Mitt Romney. The numbers -- 51 percent to President Barack Obama's 48 percent.

Staff at the Supervisor of Elections office had a long night. But the final numbers came in just after 11 p.m.

The last person voted at 9:20, meaning he or she was in line at the polling place by 7 p.m and waited at least another two hours to cast a ballot.

This was a memorable election for the Duval County Supervisor of Elections.
"Since term limits, and this being my last presidential election, it's sad because these are the things we live for," said Jerry Holland, Duval Supervisor of Elections. "This is the kind of election you get so excited about, such a great turn out. So much excitement, everybody watching. Kind of sad to come to an end."

Turn out was 72 percent a little lower than expected. Even lower than in 2008.
