Since the U.S. Constitution was written in 1787, the right to vote has been one of our greatest freedoms. In many countries, citizens do not have the same rights and privileges as Americans do, and we take our freedom to vote seriously.
As Supervisor of Elections, my staff and I are responsible for making sure elections are conducted fairly and that they are in compliance with all federal, state and local laws. Each Supervisor of Elections registers voters; keeps voting records; issues voter information cards; recruits and trains poll workers; and educates voters about voter registration, the election process and the voting system.
Visit our Web site, www.votepinellas.com, for information on upcoming elections, registering to vote, requesting a mail ballot and viewing online videos about the election process and our voting system.
