Primary day starts quietly in St. Petersburg



Polls opened in St. Petersburg for the primary election with little hassle and little turnout.

The only bit of trouble was a scanner that had to be replaced in Precinct 119, the Campbell Park Recreation Center at 601 14th St. S, said Nancy Whitlock, spokeswoman for the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections office. The ballot scanner was replaced, and the memory stick was reinserted to make sure no votes were lost, Whitlock said.

"It was working at first, and then it was sort of just jamming. We didn’t want the paper ballots damaged," Whitlock said.
