LARGO - Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announces that voted ballots can be dropped off at any of the three Elections Offices. Starting Oct. 22, 11 remote ballot drop off sites will also be available, as in past elections.
“The ballot is four pages long – two cards per voter – and all voters are eligible to request mail ballots and avoid the lines at the polls,” Clark said. “Our voters enjoy the convenience of voting by mail and having the options of either returning their ballots by mail, with 65 cents postage, or dropping them off at a ballot drop-off site.”
Supervisor of Elections Offices are located in:
• County Courthouse, Room 117, 315 Court St., Clearwater
