Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark announces that early voting for the March 13 Countywide Referendum and Municipal Elections begins at 10 a.m. on Monday, February 26.
"Some people are either too busy or have difficulty getting to their polling places on Election Day," said Clark. "Early voting and absentee ballots make casting a ballot more convenient for voters."
The early voting period will run from February 26 to March 10. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
