Miami-Dade County, FL voter records from 1930s? #usa


David W. Perle
 

Hi all, my great-grandfather had been a staunch Republican, in and outside of local office, through the mid-1930s in Paterson, NJ.  The family then moved to Miami Beach.  I found a couple of local political gossip columns in NJ which noted that he'd supposedly changed his political identity in Florida to Democrat!  It's pretty hilarious to me but would make sense--the columns do note that the region was quite Democratic, and it'd be smart for business to go with the flow.

I'm hoping that I might be able to get my hands of archived voter registration info which would show that he did indeed register there as a Democrat?  (Nothing via Ancestry right now.)
