Know Your Candidates 2000

The St. Petersburg Times has prepared this Know Your Candidates section to help voters with their choices on Tuesday's general election, which will decide the next president, a U.S. senator from Florida, state legislators and many important local seats. This section includes stories about each race or ballot question and brief biographies of the candidates. Also in this section are polling place listings and maps, as well as sample ballots.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday. Voters may cast ballots in all races for their area, regardless of party affiliation. Not every race covered in this section will appear on everyone's ballot; some are district races that cover a specific geographic area. Look for maps within the section to help determine what your districts are, or check your voter registration card.
Information about your polling location can be found on your voter registration card, or by calling your county's Supervisor of Elections Office.
If you are not already registered to vote, it is too late to register for the general election. But you should register while you are thinking about it, so you'll be eligible to vote in future elections.
