Brevard County Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott discovered the Moore’s names among a century’s worth of voting records, in the 1888-1948 Official Register of Electors for Mims.

On March 29, 1934, the Moore’s names were recorded in the official records of the Brevard County Supervisor of Elections Office.

Scott will present the historic official record book, containing the Moore’s voter registration, to the Moore Cultural Center during the Black History Month Celebration, which will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, at the Brevard County Government Center, 2725 Judge Fran Jamieson Way, in Viera.
