In Pinellas County, it would seem that everything is going smoothly for Pinellas County as nearly 50 percent of registered voters already filled out their ballots by 10:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.
But it was mid-morning that the supervisor of elections office found out that some 12,000 voters received a call telling them to vote tomorrow, the day after elections.
Nancy Whitlock, Communications Director with the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections, says the calls were made by mistake.
The robocall urging voters to get out to the polls was supposed to stop automatically dialing around 8:00 Monday night, but a glitch in the system allowed the auto-message to go out to thousands on Tuesday morning, causing a flurry of calls at the Supervisor of Elections Office. – ABC Action News, 11/6/12
