Political Forum for Bartow City Commission Race Set
A Greater Bartow Chamber of Commerce political forum is set for Thursday, March 5, 2020, at Bartow’s Carver Recreation Center in the East/West Assembly Room from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend.
Sponsored by the Chamber’s ENGAGE Young Professionals, the forum will afford voters the opportunity to meet and greet the candidates for the Bartow City Commission race for Seat 4, an at-large seat. Elections for the seat will be held April 7, 2020, between candidates Gerald Cochran, Steve Githens, and Trish Burdin-Pfeiffer (incumbent).
According to Bartow City Clerk, Jacki Poole, there will not be an “early voting” precinct for City elections; however, once the ballots are available on March 10, 2020, anyone may go directly to the Supervisor of Elections headquarters and walk in to vote. There is also a “Vote by Mail” option. March 28, 2020, is the deadline to request the VBM ballot (10 days prior to the election). March 9, 2020 is the deadline to register.
Refreshments will be served at the forum. Carver Recreation Center is located at 520 South Idlewood Avenue.
