There are three ways to vote for either Mayor Rick Baker or challenger Ed Helm (or in any of the four City Council races, for that matter):
By Absentee Ballot: If you will be out of town, or if you have any other reason that you can't make it to the polls on Election Day, you can vote by absentee ballot. It's fun, easy and democratically satisfying. Request an absentee ballot by calling the Pinellas Supervisor of Elections at 727-464-6788, or go to her website at www.votepinellas.com for more information.
Vote Early (but not often): Starting Oct. 24, registered voters in St. Petersburg can vote early in person at one of three Supervisor of Elections offices: 501 First Ave. N. (entrance on Fifth Street), St. Petersburg; 14255 49th St. N., Suite 202, Clearwater; and 315 Court St., room 117, Clearwater.
Live and in Person on Election Day: On Tuesday, Nov. 8, 114 polling places in St. Petersburg will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Bring your voter identification card and a picture ID. Your polling place is listed on your voter registration card or can be determined online at www.votepinellas.com/PrecinctFinder.aspx.
