Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announces that 18,500 absentee ballots for the March 13 County Referendum and Municipal Elections were mailed on Thursday, February 1 to those who have already requested them.
The deadline to request an absentee ballot to be mailed is 5 p.m., Wednesday, March 7. Ballots may also be picked up from any Elections Office from now through Election Day.
Completed absentee ballots must be delivered to one of the three Supervisor of Elections offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day, March 13. Absentee ballots cannot be accepted at polling places.
"Sometimes it's difficult to get to your polling place on Election Day, but an absentee ballot can be mailed right to your home," Clark said. "Many voters prefer this convenience."
