The Pinellas Supervisor of Election just released the latest turnout numbers in St. Petersburg’s mayoral primary.
Going into today, 35,555 ballots had already returned.
Through 12 p.m., 6,427 ballots have been cast on Election Day.
Altogether, 41,982 ballots have been cast in the battle of the two Ricks between Rick Kriseman and Rick Baker.
Perhaps surprisingly, it looks like there will have been more interest in the 2013 three-way race between Kriseman, Kathleen Ford, and Bill Foster than in the 2017 primary. Four years ago, 50,055 voters took part in the city election.
It would be surprising if 8K plus voters are waiting until later in the day to head to the polls.
