Early voting begins 15 days prior to each election for voters' convenience in all Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections offices.
For the March 7 Municipal Elections, early voting began February 20 and ends March 4.
For the March 14 Municipal Elections, early voting is February27 until March 11.
Early voting hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. A new state law limits early voting to eight hours per weekday and eight hours total per weekend - either Saturday, Sunday, or a combination of the two days. The law now excludes early voting the day before the election.
To avoid delays and extra paperwork, citizens should bring picture and signature identification to the polls. Anyone without valid ID can vote a provisional ballot, which will be evaluated by a canvassing board for eligibility.
Elections offices are located at 315 Court St., Room 117, Clearwater; 14255 49th St. N., Suite 202, Clearwater; and 501 1st Ave. N., St. Petersburg.
Florida law provides that any registered voter may request an absentee ballot in person, by mail or by calling 464-6788. For more details on absentee voting, visit www.votepinellas.com and click on Absentee Ballot Information.
