WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO VOTE:

  • Registered voters residing in Belleair Bluffs, Gulfport, Kenneth City, Oldsmar, Seminole, South Pasadena, Tarpon Springs and Treasure Island may vote in their respective nonpartisan elections.
  • All elections are voted at-large.
  • The deadline to register to vote was February 11 (29 days prior to the election).

WHEN:

  • Polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day.

WHERE:

  • State law requires that a voter vote in the precinct in which he/she resides. If you have moved, you are required to vote in your new home precinct.
  • Polling places for municipal elections may be different than those for countywide elections. Voters are encouraged to confirm their polling places by visiting www.votepinellas.com or calling (727) 464-VOTE (8683).

HOW:

  • Bring photo and signature identification with you to the polls to avoid delays and extra paperwork. Anyone without valid and current photo and signature ID may vote a provisional ballot. The canvassing board will later determine the validity of any provisional ballots. Valid provisional ballots will be included in official election results.
  • State law requires voters who make out-of-county address changes at the polls to vote a provisional ballot, except for active military voters and their families. Address changes can be made by calling 464-VOTE (8683) or emailing election@votepinellas.com; include date of birth.

MAIL BALLOTS:

  • Mail ballots may be picked up or voted in person at any Supervisor of Elections Office through Election Day. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Election Day in any of the three Elections Offices in order to be counted. Mail ballots cannot be accepted at a precinct polling place. (The deadline to request a ballot be mailed to you is March 6.)
  • A voter who requests a mail ballot but later decides to vote at the polling place instead may bring his/her ballot to the polling place to be cancelled and then receive a new ballot to vote at the polls.

OTHER INFORMATION:

  • No political activity or campaign signs are allowed inside the polling place or within 100 feet of the polling place entrance. Exit polling is permitted in designated areas as voters are leaving the polls.
  • No photography is allowed inside the polling place.
  • Sample ballots may be viewed at www.votepinellas.com.
  • If you have any other election-related questions, please call the Elections Office at (727) 464-VOTE (8683).
