Call Tells 12,000 Pinellas Voters Ballots Are Due Tomorrow
A glitch in the phone system caused the calls to go out.
Early on Election Day, the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Office made automatic calls telling voters them that they could vote until 7 p.m. Wednesday, the day after election day, according to Tampabay.com. Of course, polls close at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
Nancy Whitlock, with the Pinellas Supervisor of Elections Office told Patch that there were 12,310 calls placed between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Earlier reports said that perhaps only a few hundred people got the call.
All 12,310 were then called back with the correct information, Whitlock said.
The calls told voters who requested mail ballots but had not turned them in that they had until 7 p.m. tomorrow to turn them in.
