About Broward County, Florida
Named after the lesser-known Napoleon—Napoleon Bonaparte Broward—Broward County is the second largest county in Florida. Broward County was at one time the agricultural heart of the state. Now, the county leverages its sunny weather and warm beaches as a tourist destination.
In the News: Broward County was at the center of one of the most famous cases in recent history: Bush v. Gore. This landmark decision stopped recounts in Broward County and elsewhere after the hotly contested 2000 presidential election brought the national spotlight upon Florida. The decision and its aftermath caused Broward County, as well as other Florida counties, to make sweeping changes to their election laws and procedures. As a result, Florida and Broward County now consider themselves leaders in ensuring fair and efficient elections.
