Redner/Miller draw voters



How compelling is the City Council runoff election between retired schoolteacher Gwen Miller and strip club owner Joe Redner? Consider this: Turnout in the first two days of early voting for the runoff is 32 percent higher than the same period in the primary election, according to the supervisor of elections. Both candidates have been urging voters to go to the polls. Fewer than 16 percent of Tampa's registered voters cast a ballot in the primary election March 6. Miller has suggested people take one, five or 10 people to the polls for the runoff, and make sure they vote for her. Redner is offering free admission to his strip club to anyone who comes in with an "I Voted" sticker. Read more about it here.
