Pinellas elections supervisor unveils revamped website

Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark has given her website a face-lift, just in time for the August 14 primary election.

The changes are mostly cosmetic — gone is the scrolling news bar asking you to register to vote — and a few items have been shifted around.

Voter education, information, and registration have been consolidated under the new tab titled “Voters." Candidates, political parties, and committees are under “Candidates and Committees” and general FAQs have been placed under “General Information.” There’s also a new section for reporters and a photo gallery of ballot drop-off sites and volunteers.

Here's the press release:

Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark released today an enhanced Web site to provide voters with more user-friendly access to voter
registration and election information.

“Every Web site needs a makeover now and then to keep it fresh,” Clark said. “Our Web hosting agreement includes a periodic Web refresh with no
additional cost to taxpayers.”

In addition to the cosmetic changes, several menu changes include:
· Voter Education, Voter Information and Voter Registration
moved under the title “Voters”
· Candidates, Political Parties and Committees moved under
the title “Candidates and Committees”
· Petitions moved under the title “Election Information”
· FAQs moved under the title “General Information”
· Election Results moved under the title “Statistics”

The site now includes a Media Room to assist reporters and researchers with statistics and background information. This section also includes a photo

Voters are encouraged to visit the Web site and browse through the new links before the August 14 Primary Election. Voters can also check their
registration status, request a mail ballot, view a sample ballot and track their mail ballot online. The Site Map link at the top of the page provides
a quick reference tool.

Voters using the Internet Explorer browser may need to turn off the compatibility view mode by going to Tools/Compatibility View Settings and
unchecking all boxes for optimum viewing.
