Early voting has begun for several Tampa City Council runoff elections.
Voters can cast their in-person ballot as early as tomorrow morning.
There are four runoff races in which the finals will be determined by the voters.
The most high profile of these races is between incumbent Lynn Hertek and former state senator Janet Cruz for the Citywide District 3 seat.
Hertek has criticized Cruz’s familial relationship with Mayor Jane Caster, while Cruz has accused Hertek of being anti-gay.
Other races include Guido Maniscalco vs.
Robin Lockett for the district 2 city-wide seat, Hoyt Prindle vs.
incumbent Charlie Miranda for district 6, and Alan Clendenin vs.
Sonja Brookins for the Citywide district one spot.
Early voting runs from 10 a.m.
to 6 p.m.
every day until next Sunday, April 25th, which is Election Day.
The unofficial turnout numbers for the Tampa Municipal runoff elections so far show that about 11,000 out of over 240,000 eligible voters have submitted their ballots, with more Democrats voting than Republicans or Independents.
