Nearly 200,000 ballots mailed out for Pinellas congressional and city elections

The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections mailed out 193,744 ballots on Friday, most of them for the Congressional District 13 election. The ballots also included municipal elections in Clearwater, Tarpon Springs and 10 other cities.

Voters can sign the ballot envelopes and mail them back to the Supervisor of Elections. They do not have to be returned right away, but they must be received by Election Day (March 11) to be counted.

Although these ballots already have gone out, it's not too late to request a mail ballot. Voters can call (727) 464-8683 to make the request.

In the congressional race, Republican David Jolly, Libertarian Lucas Overby and Democrat Alex Sink are running. There also is a space on the ballot where voters can write in a candidate. An independent, Michael Levinson, is running as a write-in candidate.

Monday is the last day residents can register to vote in March 11 elections.

  3. FBI: Florida man sympathized with IS, wanted to bomb mall


    MIAMI (AP) — A Florida man who described himself as a sympathizer of the Islamic State extremist group faces terrorism-related charges stemming from a purported plot to bomb a Miami-area shopping mall, according to court documents filed Monday.

    An undated file image posted on an extremist website on Jan. 14, 2014, shows fighters from the Islamic State group marching in Raqqa, Syria. The group champions a hyper-religious lifestyle grounded in a self-proclaimed caliphate, but most recruits have a superficial understanding of religion and are largely ignorant in the laws of Islam.
