DUVAL COUNTY SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS WARNS OF POTENTIALLY MISLEADING MAILOUT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 22, 2018 


June 22, 2018 – Jacksonville, FL – Mike Hogan, the Duval County Supervisor of Elections, is warning citizens of Duval County about potentially misleading mailings they could be receiving in the weeks leading up to elections held later this year. Historically these mail-outs often include Florida Voter Registration Applications with information pre-filled and are sometimes addressed to informal names, children under voting age, pets, and deceased family members. Although they do identify themselves their documents and envelopes look official.
 
These letters originate from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) and the Center for Voter Information(CVI), two organizations not associated with the Florida Division of Elections or the Duval County Supervisor of Elections. The VPC and CVI generate address lists for these mailings from outdated and often incorrect data, which can lead to confusion regarding eligibility for voting, especially among voters who are already registered. Duval voters who know they are registered are urged to confirm their voter record by using the “Voter Status” link on the Supervisor of Elections website, at - www.duvalelections.com, or call the Supervisor of Elections office; and to not rely on the information printed on these mailed-out applications.
Any questions regarding eligibility for those currently not registered can also be directed to these sources. For those who wish to register or update their information online, a new Florida Division of Elections portal is available at www.registertovoteflorida.gov. Otherwise, applicants may access Florida Voter Registration Application forms at either Supervisor of Elections office at 105 East Monroe Street or at your local Tax Collector’s office or Public Library. Registering online or in person is the best way to confirm that the application is received and that the information is correct.
