Florida House seat district nine opened up this year when Representative Lorraine Ausley hit her term limit.
Running on the Democratic ticket is Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda.
Vasilinda is among fellow Democrats at The Moon Night Club where the state Democratic party is watching election returns.
The Republican contender is Peter Boulware.
He and his supporters are waiting for election results tonight at Rodizio's Restaurant.
Both contenders are first time political candidates.
"I have really gotten to know this community very, very well and I've grown as an individual. This has been just an absolutely tremendous experience," says Rehwinkel Vasilinda.
"We've put a lot into it and now all we have to do is sit back and wait for the results to come in and hopefully the voters will vote my way,"
This has historically been a Democratic dominated seat... but this race is very close this time around.
