Election day for cities around Pinellas

Voters went to the polls Tuesday in cities from South Pasadena to Indian Rocks Beach. Key issues include choosing a new mayor and two commissioners in a much divided St. Pete Beach, while Madeira Beach voters add a majority of new faces to the city's leadership.

Two referendums are also before the voters: The first will determine whether to adopt a petition to save the Snack Shack, while the second question asks voters to change the city charter which restricts residents from signing more than two candidate petition cards.

In Treasure Island and South Pasadena, voters will decide whether to replace incumbents with newcomers for commission seats.

Voters in Indian Shores and Indian Rocks Beach, along with residents in Largo and Seminole will vote on whether to increase fire fees in the Pinellas Suncoast Fire & Rescue District in an ad valorem assessment referendum.
