The seat in Florida State House District 35 is vacant following the resignation of Republican Rep. Fred Hawkins after he was chosen to be the next President of South Florida State College. The 35th District covers parts of Orange and Osceola Counties just southeast of Orlando. Democrats and Republicans chose their nominees for this vacancy in primary elections on November 7. The district went Biden +5 in 2020, but Rep. Hawkins won the seat for the Republicans by 10.8% in 2022. Polls close at 7 p.m. (EST). We will have the election results below once they do.
