REDINGTON SHORES – A newcomer will join the Redington Shores Commission. Mary Beth Henderson defeated incumbent Casey Wojcik for District 3 in the March 11 municipal election.
According to unofficial results posted on the Supervisor of Elections website, Henderson received 140 votes, 63.93 percent. Wojcik brought in 79 votes, 36.07 percent.
Unofficial results show that 219 voted in the municipal election. Redington Shores voters had returned 75.6 percent of 193 mail ballots requested as of March 10. Another six cast their ballot during early voting.
Redington Shores residents also joined with others in Pinellas County to pick a new representative for District 13 in the U.S. Congress. Republican David Jolly defeated challengers Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby. He will fill the seat left vacant after former Rep. C.W. “Bill” Young died Oct. 18.
According to Elections Administrator Nancy Whitlock, counts from the provisional ballots will be added. The unofficial results also do not contain all mail ballots or 10-day overseas ballots.
Official election results cannot be certified until votes from the 10-day overseas ballots are added to unofficial results, and the earliest that can occur is the 10th day after the election. The deadline to certify official election results is noon on the 12th day after the election.
