Following the St. Petersburg mayoral race? Follow us




There is less than a week to go before Election Day in the St. Petersburg mayoral primary, and 36 percent of voters who say they definitely will vote remain undecided, a new St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 poll shows. We found that a bit shocking that so many voters still don't know how they'll vote next Tuesday. reader Franklin from St. Pete was alarmed, too: "How can one say they 'will definitely vote' but are undecided so close to the primary election? There have been forums, debates, news articles, mailings and TV ads."

Marcos from St. Pete had a message for residents who don't plan on making it to the polls: "Our next mayor will be decided by those of us that actually take the time to get out and vote.  The rest of you will have to live with OUR decision."

We want to be sure voters know where to turn for coverage before the election and on Election Day.
