Absentee ballots in the mail soon in St. Petersburg; expect campaign mailers to follow



ST. PETERSBURG - Early voters: You are about to get a lot more mail.

The Pinellas County supervisor of elections will start mailing absentee ballots July 13.

St. Petersburg mayoral candidates Scott Wagman and Jamie Bennett have requested a list of potential early voters in what appears to be a targeted campaign tactic.

Other mayoral candidates will likely request the same information over the next few weeks, said Nancy Whitlock, spokeswoman for Elections Supervisor Deborah Clark.

We will try to fact check as many of the campaign mailers as possible.

Help us out.

Fax copies of the mailers to (727) 893-8675 or e-mail us at
