Mail ballots were sent out to 6,182 registered St. Pete voters Tuesday for those living in District 7 for the August 25 primary election. The district encompasses parts of South St. Pete including the Midtown and Child’s Park neighborhoods.
Only voters in that district are eligible to vote in this election.
Only those voters who requested mail ballots will receive them in the first wave of mail outs. Additional requests can still be sent to the Supervisor of Election’s via its website. Voters wishing to vote by mail can also email requests to email@example.com or by calling 727-464-VOTE (8683).
Ballots will be mailed the same day the requests are received during business hours or the following day if it’s after business hours. The deadline to request a mail ballot is August 19 at 5 p.m.
Ballots can be returned to one of three Supervisor of Elections offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark reminds voters to allow at least five days for ballots to be mailed to ensure on-time delivery.
For those cutting it too close for snail mail, the ballots can be physically dropped off at one of the locations. Those are the Election Service Center at 13001 Starkey Road, the Pinellas County Courthouse at 315 Court Street in Clearwater and the County building on 501 First Avenue North in downtown St. Pete.
Ballots may not be turned in to individual polling places on Election Day.
