The six counties that posted the highest voter turnout in Florida’s Aug. 28 primary election are different in many ways, but the people who live there all share a passion for small-town, slow-lane living, far from city centers. And they still know and care about their neighbors. Sumter County is the home of The Villages, “Florida’s Friendliest Hometown.” Holmes County features an annual covered wagon train that winds its way to the Northwest Florida Championship Rodeo in Bonifay. Franklin County has a hundred-year tradition built around the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola seafood. Jefferson County is the home of Monticello, “the most haunted small town in Florida.” Gadsden County, with its hills and valleys, promotes itself as a bicyclist’s paradise. And tiny Liberty County is logging country, home to the Apalachicola State Forest.
