What is a Third-Party Voter Registration Organization?
Any person, entity, or organization that collects any voter registration application, EXCEPT the following are NOT:
- A person who collects a voter registration application from that person’s spouse, child, or parent; or
- A person engaged in registering to vote or collecting voter registration applications as an employee or agent of the Division of Elections, Supervisor of Elections, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, or an official voter registration agency designated by the National Voter Registration Act or state law (sections 97.021 & 97.058, Florida Statutes).
What does a Third-Party Voter Registration Organization have to file?
Before engaging in any voter registration activities (defined in Rule 1SER12-01 as meaning when an organization collects voter registration applications from Florida applicants), a 3PVRO must register by submitting Form DS-DE 119 as an e-mail attachment in pdf format to 3PVRO@dos.myflorida.com or transmitting it to the Division’s facsimile machine at 850-245-6291. The Division must approve the registration and assign the 3PVRO an ID # before the 3PVRO is considered registered to conduct voter registration activities.
How does my organization update or withdraw it's registration as a Third-Party Voter Registration Organization?
A 3PVRO must submit Form DS-DE 119 reflecting the update or withdrawal within 10 days following any change to information previously submitted to the Division. The form must be submitted as an e-mail attachment in pdf format to 3PVRO@dos.myflorida.com or transmitted to the Division’s facsimile machine at 850-245-6291.
Note: If a 3PVRO’s registration agent terminates his or her employment, the 3PVRO must file an amended Form DS-DE 119 or send an email or fax to the Division reflecting the termination.
What do I do once I receive my third party voter registration number from the Division of Elections?
You may make copies of the voter registration form or you may get the forms from the Duval County Supervisor of Elections office. Before we give forms to a third party, we are required to put the number on the back of each form.
Once you receive forms back from the voter, you have ten days to return them to our office at 105 E. Monroe St. Write the date you received the voter application from the voter. When you bring them in, we will count them and give a receipt to you for the voter applications.
