Want to Vote in the Rowdies Referendum?
Monday (April 3) is the last day to register to be eligible to vote in the May 2 Rowdies referendum. You don’t have to re-register if you’re already registered.
ST. PETERSBURG – The Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections is reminding St. Petersburg residents that Monday (April 3) is the deadline to register to vote in the May 2 St. Petersburg Special Election Referendum.
Registration is required for new voters by this deadline in order to participate in the Special Election Referendum. Voters who are already registered to vote in Florida do not need to re-register but can update their voter registration address.
The referendum gives St. Petersburg residents a chance to decide whether the city can approve a deal to lease Al Lang Field for up to 25 years to be primarily used for a home field for a Major League Soccer expansion team. Any upgrades to the stadium would be paid for by the team and not with tax money. The Tampa Bay Rowdies soccer team, which is applying for a Major League Soccer expansion franchise, has asked to lease the field. The team has said it will pay for upgrades.
Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark has already mailed 67,222 ballots to domestic voters who live in St. Petersburg. There’s still time for eligible registered voters to an request a mail ballot. Voted mail ballots must be received at one of the three Elections Offices by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Please note, postal delivery service has changed.
Voter registration applications are available at any Supervisor of Elections office, public library, tax collector office, government office handling social services or online at VotePinellas.com. To request a mail ballot, go to VotePinellas.com, call 727-464-VOTE (8683) or email MailBallot@VotePinellas.com. The deadline to request that a ballot be mailed is 5 p.m. on April 26.
