Light turnout likely in Pinellas County

Polling places throughout Pinellas County opened at 7 a.m. today for the primary election to determine who will be on the November ballot in partisan races, and the final results in other races, including the school board and judges.

Voters who haven’t mailed in ballots or voted at an early voting site will be able to cast ballots at their precinct locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

St. Petersburg voters in Precinct 139 are voting at Roberts Recreation Center, 1246 50th Ave. N., because of a weekend fire at their original polling place, the Vietnamese Evangelical Church, 4344 21st St. N.

Regardless of precinct, each ballot will contain at least one race of interest to all voters, especially because some will be decided once and for all today.

Voters will get to decide on four nonpartisan School Board races, two of them countywide, today.

For the at-large District 2 seat, incumbent Terry Krassner and Chris Tauchnitz will be on the ballot.

The two contenders on the ballot for the countywide District 3 seat are Kent Curtis and incumbent Peggy O’Shea.
