The seat in Florida’s 118th State House District is vacant following the appointment of Republican Rep. Juan Fernandez-Barquin to be the Miami-Dade County Clerk by Governor Ron DeSantis. The 118th District lies in southwest Miami-Dade County. No primaries were held for this district, as only one candidate from each party filed. There is also an independent candidate on the ballot. The district was won easily by Republicans back in 2022. Polls close at 7 p.m. (EST). We will have the election results below once they do.
