Marcus Announces Run for Pinellas Elections Supervisor
Julie Marcus was appointed Tuesday to fill out the term of Deborah Clark, who retired as Pinellas Supervisor of Elections in March.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Julie Marcus on Wednesday (May 20) announced her campaign for Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections.
“I couldn’t be more honored to announce our campaign for Pinellas Supervisor of Elections,” Marcus said. “For nearly two decades I’ve had the honor to work alongside Supervisor Deborah Clark and help oversee more than 320 secure elections in Pinellas County. Now more than ever during this time of uncertainty, our community and all Floridians need to have confidence in the integrity of our elections. I have the experience and confidence to continue to deliver for Pinellas County.”
Marcus, a St. Petersburg resident, was appointed to the elections supervisor’s role Tuesday (May 19) by Gov. Ron DeSantis. She will fill out the term of Deborah Clark, who retired in March.
Marcus said she comes from a family dedicated to service to our country. Her father, a veteran of the U.S. Army, defended America from enemies that would do us harm. Now, Marcus said she works to protect and secure our democracy by ensuring Pinellas County continues to conduct elections that protect our sacred right to vote.

Working side-by-side with Clark to conduct more than 320 elections in Pinellas County, Marcus said she has learned from the best.
