Pinellas County's Supervisor of Elections, Deborah Clark, says she won't follow an order from Florida's Secretary of State, on where voters can drop off their absentee ballots.

This comes as Pinellas gets ready to hold a special election to replace the late CW Bill Young in congress.

Secretary of State Ken Detzner sent a memo last week saying voters should not be told to drop off their ballots anywhere but a Supervisor of Elections' office.

But Pinellas supervisor Deborah Clark says she will not follow that order and voters can drop off their ballots at other locations.

Under state law, Detzner could file a lawsuit against Clark, to try to force her to follow his order.
