Once again two Washington, D.C.-based nonprofits, the Center for Voter Information and the Voter Participation Center, are sending potentially misleading mailings to Alachua County voters and other residents.
The two groups, which routinely send similar mailings across Florida, announced they will collectively send more than 13,000 pieces of mail to Alachua County. In 2020, the same groups sent more than 30,000 mailings. Residents started receiving the unofficial mailings last week.
Intended for residents who are not registered to vote, the groups’ mailings have previously confused and angered some voters, with notices sent based on incorrect or out-of-date information. Prior mailings have resulted in pre-filled voter registration applications sent to already registered voters, deceased persons, minor children, and even pets.
Both the Center for Voter Information and the Voter Participation Center are not affiliated with the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections. The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections does not provide the address information used to conduct the mailings.
Individuals with questions or concerns regarding these mailings are encouraged to contact these groups directly and can unsubscribe from future mailings using the following links:
