Democrats still hold the upper hand in Miami Beach, barely. 

A review of data from the Miami-Dade County Supervisor of Elections shows there are 19,490 registered Democrats in Miami Beach, accounting for 38.2% of active voters. Non-Affiliated voters have the second biggest bloc with 18,894 (37%) followed by Republicans with 11,688 (22.9%). 

Overall, Miami Beach has 29 precincts with 50,958 active voters. White voters make 47.6% of the electorate followed by Hispanic voters 38.2% and Black voters 5.1%. A total of 10.5% marked “other” on race identity.

Democrats took the top of the ticket with Val Demings defeating Marco Rubio, 56.9% to 45.9% in the Senate campaign. Charlie Crist beat Ron DeSantis in the governor’s race, 53.2% to 45.9%, although DeSantis won 12 precincts, doing well north of 41st Street and in the Bayshore neighborhood. Active voter participation in the governor’s race was 49.1%. 

Miami Beach is located in Congressional District 24, where incumbent Rep. Frederica Wilson cruised to victory over Jesus Navarro, 56.1% to 43.8%.

The city went back to the polls not long after the midterms to elect a commissioner in group two. Laura Dominguez defeated Sabrina Cohen, 5,352 (61.2%) to 3,391 (38.7%) in the Dec. 6 election. Dominguez, endorsed by SAVE and Equality Florida, replaces her life partner Mark Samuelian, who died suddenly in June.
