A total of 11 municipalities in Pinellas County will have elections Tuesday for local offices, ranging from Mayor to City and Town Council members or Commissioners.
Candidates are on the ballot in Belleair Bluffs, Gulfport, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Kenneth City, Madeira Beach, Redington Shores, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach, Tarpon Springs and Treasure Island.
Elections in Belleair Shore, North Redington Beach, Redington Beach and Safety Harbor were canceled because the number of qualified candidates did not exceed the number of offices up for election.
