Stylish voters line up all around Tampa Bay
Our Tampa Bay Times reporters are working diligently in the rain today, reporting from polling locations all over Tampa Bay. They're snapping pics of people and things they see on Instagram, so if you want to follow along, look for #tampabaytimes and @politicstbtimes. Here are some of the voting outfits our spies captured already today!
Perfect rainy day outfit for a little ladybug.
Here's voter Marguerite at the Coliseum in St. Petersburg. She was first in line, and very festive with her sparkles, jacket and kerchief.
And her socks!
Loretha Barthel demonstrates how to pair a umbrella with your layered candidate shirt out in East Tampa.
Wendi Raulerson here wears red, white and blue ensembles for every election, no matter how small. "I love being an American," she told Marissa at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Tampa. "Simple as that."
This woman voted early and just wanted to use the Jimmie B. Keel Regional Library today. Still, she toted her patriotic purse in honor of election day.
Here are our election day pastries at the Tampa Bay Times newsroom. I know, it's not fashion, but we love food equally as much. It's true.
Fearless political journalist and style star Katie Sanders at lunch in her leopard pencil skirt and cross-body bag, fueling up for a long night of returns.
Here's what I wore to my polling place this morning. Polka dots for patriotism!
I'll add more to the blog as they stream in during the day. If you see any outlandish, fun or stylish looks at your precincts today, snap them and hashtag #tampabaytimes on Instagram. We might include them on the blog. Happy voting!
