Requests for absentee ballots up in Pinellas



Pinellas County SOE Deb Clark's aversion to early voting is well known. She likes the absentee approach, which has earned her criticism from some quarters, including the Times editorial board. Today, Clark announced that she's mailing 102,000 ballots to voters who've requested them in advance of the Nov. 4 election. That's more than 16 percent of registered voters and breaks the 2004 general election record of 100,103 ballots mailed, according to Clark's office.
