Supervisor of Elections Warns Pasco Voters of Misleading Information from
the Voter Participation Center 

Pasco County FL - Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections, reports his
offices have begun receiving phone calls from confused and angry voters who
are receiving voter registration applications in the mail from the Voter
Participation Center (VPC)., based out of Washington DC. Voters mistakenly
believe the mailings are coming from the Pasco County Supervisor of
Elections' Office.

"The majority of the phone calls we are receiving are from already
registered voters who are questioning what has happened to their voter
registration," said Supervisor Corley.  "This is very confusing to them, and
rightly so. It is creating suspicion, mistrust, and increased anger which
further erodes the confidence of voters and unnecessarily places a burden on
the elections' office staff which is actively preparing for upcoming
elections."  

For the most accurate information, voters who receive these mailings can
check their voter registration status at  www.pascovotes.com or call our
office at 800-851-8754.  

"I am encouraging all voters who receive these notices to check their voter
registration status before pushing the panic button, and advising them to
contact the VPC directly with their grievances," said Supervisor Corley.
"We have dealt with the VPC in the past, and sadly, they continue to cause
unnecessary confusion for the voters. It's time they hear from the voters." 

Contact Jennifer Carrier on behalf of the Voter Participation Center at
(202) 420-3034 or toll free at (877) 255-6750.  

The Voter Participation Center has previously launched voter registration
campaigns using erroneous consumer data lists that were outdated.  So, just
check with our office to make sure the information we have on you is
accurate and up-to-date.
