ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Pinellas County voters can soon drop off their mail ballot where the Tampa Bay Rays call home.

The Rays are partnering with the county to turn the ballpark parking lot into a drive-thru mail ballot drop-off location.

Tropicana Field will be open at Gate 1 from October 19 to November 2 at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, according to the county's election office.

“I am excited to partner with the Tampa Bay Rays. This is another example of our community coming together during a pandemic to have successful elections. Tropicana Field is an ideal place for an additional mail ballot drop-off location to help serve nearly 370,000 Pinellas voters who have already requested mail ballots for the General Election,” said election supervisor Julie Marcus in a press release.
