Julie Marcus has worked in the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections office since 2002.

Governor Ron DeSantis has appointed Julie Marcus as the new Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections.

She replaces Deborah Clark, who retired on March 31 after nearly 20 years to spend more time with her family.

Marcus has worked in various capacities since joining the department in 2002, and has been chief deputy since 2012.

“We are three months from the primary and five months from the general election,” said Marcus, a University of South Florida graduate. “Having administered more than 320 elections, my extensive intuitional knowledge and hands-on experience has prepared me for what we need to do to be successful. We are mission focused.” 

In her letter of resignation, Clark praised Marcus and urged DeSantis to name her as Clark’s replacement.

“I am honored and humbled to have been appointed to serve as Pinellas County’s Supervisor of Elections by Gov. DeSantis,” Marcus said. “I would like to thank my mentor, Deborah Clark, for strongly recommending me for the position based on my 17 years of elections administrative experience.”
