Brevard Supervisor of Elections Alerts Brevard County Voters of Third Party Organization Mailings

mailing campaigns initiated by Voter Participation Center and Center for Voter Information
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott has issued an alert to Brevard voters of mailing campaigns initiated by both the Voter Participation Center and the Center for Voter Information, a sister organization of VPC.
These two organizations are expected to send more than 29,000 mailings out to Brevard County residents starting this week.
The VPC and CVI are both Washington, D.C. based voter organizations that, per their websites, target citizens who are not registered to vote.
“Although well-intentioned, these types of mailers create a lot of concern and unnecessary confusion, especially when a citizen who is already registered receives a new voter registration application,” said Scott.
“The voter’s first thought is they are no longer registered to vote.”
Scott said that historically, the VPC and CVI pull information for their mailings from various, unverified sources. Consequently, voter registration applications have been sent to deceased persons, pets, and children resulting in concerned calls to the Supervisor of Elections.
“To alleviate any misunderstanding with these unsolicited and unofficial mailings from third party organizations, voters are encouraged to verify their voter registration status under the “voter information” tab HERE or by calling the office directly at 321-633-2124,” said Scott.
The VPC and CVI are registered third-party organizations with the State of Florida. These organizations are not affiliated in any way with the Brevard County Supervisor of Elections office.
Voters with questions or concerns regarding these mailings are encouraged to contact the VPC toll free at 877-255-6750 or CVI directly at 202-766-6575.
