Every vote counts. But what happens when there are no votes at all?

That's the case in Tamarac. No voters showed up Wednesday night to cast a ballot in an annexation referendum for an unincorporated Broward County community.

There are 68 registered voters in the 200-person Prospect Bend neighborhood. Tamarac officials have proposed annexing the neighborhood.

Details were mailed to voters. If just one had shown up, that one vote would have decided the neighborhood's fate.

The cost of keeping a polling site open for 12 hours: $2,500.
