Pinellas County FL, Elections Supervisor Deborah Clark did not mail sample ballots out for the Midterm Election on 11/06/18. She instead put sample ballots into our local newspaper. Just who reads the newspaper these days? 🙄
With only 27 days until the primary election, and not receiving a sample midterm ballot in the mail, i gave our local office a call. I requested the election supervisor send me one.
After being put on hold i was asked my name and phone number. It was confirmed I was not sent a general midterm sample ballot. The friendly person i spoke with asked if someone could call me back. They were trying to find a way to send me a sample midterm ballot.
I received a phone call back rather quickly. The person said it was not possible to mail me a ballot, but i could pick one up at the local supervisor of elections office. A friend had also mentioned not receiving a sample midterm ballot in the mail earlier. We both had received a sample primary midterm ballot before.
This is the sample midterm primary ballot that was mailed out prior to the election. Possibly Deborah Clark wanted to save money? The primary sample ballot was large and well laid out. Possibly fearing a Red Tsunami maybe she wanted to hide the info? 😆
