If you live in Pinellas County and are signed up for a mail in Ballot your Ballot should have been in the mail last week.
If you haven’t seen it check in the stack of mail on the coffee table, bureau, kitchen table or where ever you throw your mail and dig it out.
With all of the current political noise about the Presidential race you may be tempted to just pass on this primary election.
Remember this is a Primary election, not the general election so your Ballot is Party specific and you don’t have to choose between Trump or Clinton they are not on this Ballot.
There are several really important items on his ballot including US senate races.
There are also some nonpartisan races where the outcome is final. Most important is the Pinellas County School Board where some serious changes are needed.
Also there is the Amendment 4 question related to solar energy. That alone should send you digging through the mail pile to find your ballot.
Need some more information?
Lost your mail in Ballot?
Check out the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections web site.
Also note that you should have received a new Voter ID Card in the last month or so. If you don’t have it, you may want to dig a little deeper in that mail pile.
Maybe your like and me this whole election cycle driven by the Republican madness with Trump and the credibility issues with Clinton have really turned you off.
As a really smart person once said, “Local government is really the one that affects you the most.”
Not sure about the judges? Just Google their names you should get enough information to make an informed decision.
And the School Board? Could be the most important vote you will cast his year.
I mailed my Ballot in last week. Join me won’t you and make sure we get the best local, State and national representation we can.
