buses stop near most Polling locations
The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority is reminding voters that its bus routes serve nearly every polling location in Pinellas County. PSTA has partnered with the supervisor of elections office to develop a list of polling locations along with the corresponding PSTA routes that serve them. Riders can find a link to that list at PSTA.net. Voters can look up their designated polling location by visiting the supervisor of elections website at vote pinellas.com.

• 1 to 6 p.m. Jan. 6, Epiphany Glendi, Craig Park, 5 Beekman Way, Tarpon Springs
They also invite community members to bring family or community photos from the old days up to the present, which they will scan and add to the collection. If you have questions, would like to be involved or would like project staff to attend one of your events, contact Tina Bucuvalas at (727) 937-1130 or [email protected], or Alyce Diamandis at [email protected]
