TAMPA -- The Pinellas County Commission could flip parties, depending on who wins Tuesday's election.
Three of the seats will end up Republican, the other three going to the Democrats, so one race will decide the majority. Incumbent Pat Gerard has had the at-large District 2 seat since 2014, and Democrats have controlled the commission for a decade. She faces charter bus company president Brian Scott.
In Hillsborough, Democratic incumbent Harry Cohen faces Republican Scott Levinson in District 1, in a rematch of 2020. In District 5, incumbent Democrat Mariella Smith faces republican Donna Cepeda, and in District 7, incumbent Democrat Kimberly Overman faces Republican Joshua Wostal.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
