BREAKING NEWS: Baron, Velazquez heading to runoff


Election results for Apopka and Orange County

From Staff Reports

Despite a record number of Apopka casting ballots in the 2020 election, it will take one more cycle of voting to determine who sits in seat #2 of the Apopka City Commission. Diane Velazquez, former Apopka City Commissioner, and first time candidate Yesenia Baron will face off again in December. Velazquez received 10,318 votes, 42.6%, and while she received the most votes of the four candidates competing for Seat #2, it wasn't enough to avoid the run off with Baron, who received 6,157 votes, 25.34%.

Gene Knight, who ran for Seat #1 in 2018, came in third place with 4,028 votes, 16.57%, while Nick Nesta, also a first-time candidate, came in fourth place in the four-person race, receiving 3,799 votes, 15.63%.

Over 24,000 Apopka voters cast ballots in this special election, which was by far the highest turnout in a city commission election.
