History

Broward County was created in 1915. It was named for Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, Governor of Florida from 1905 to 1909. In 1915, Palm Beach County and Dade County contributed nearly equal portions of land to create Broward County. By the 1960s, Broward County was considered a leader in agriculture products and services within the State of Florida. The massive buildup of the South Florida region since the mid 1970s transformed the region, evidenced by the closure of the last major agriculture center within the county (Waldrep Dairy Farm) in 2003. It was one of the counties at the center of the 2000 U.S. Presidential election recount controversy. In 2002, it began an aggressive campaign of placing surveillance cameras along highways and traffic lights. Napoleon Bonaparte Broward, (April 19, 1857–October 1, 1910), known to his comrades in arms as The Prince of Liars,[1] was the nineteenth governor of the U.S. state of Florida from January 3, 1905 to January 5, 1909. ...

Politics

Over the past fifty years, Broward County has gone from solidly Republican to solidly Democratic. In 1972, Broward County residents voted overwhelmingly for Richard Nixon over George McGovern. In the past two presidential elections, however, the voters of Broward County backed the Democratic nominee over George W. Bush by strong majorities. Broward County is now one of the most reliably Democratic counties in the state. [10] This change in voting tendencies is most likely due to the continuous flow from large migrations of snowbirds and transplanted people from the liberal Northeast and other blue states, as well as Canada, Europe, Israel, and other areas. Also, the fast growing number of minorities such as Black people (African Americans and West Indians,) the GLBT community, and Hispanics in the area are a contributing factor.
