Voter Participation Center Targets Pasco Voters
Pasco County FL – Brian E. Corley, Supervisor of Elections.
The Voter Participation Center (VPC) and the Center for Voter Information (CVI) will be targeting Pasco County residents with voter registration application mailings beginning this week.
In the past these mailing have confused and angered some Pasco voters who received them for family members who are deceased, persons no longer residing or whom never resided in their household or the state of Florida, and even for their pets and underage children. The mailings often arouse suspicion from already-registered voters who believe their registration has in some way been compromised.
After many years of lobbying by myself and my fellow Supervisors, the legislature passed a bill which was signed by Governor DeSantis that allowed Florida to join the multi state compact known as the Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC). This allow us to compare the voter rolls with many other states to ensure the integrity of our voter rolls. Also, it allows the State of Florida to identify Eligible But Unregistered (EBU) persons and last September over 2.2 million Floridians were notified with information on how to register to vote. This historic initiative makes the VPC/CVI mailings even less necessary.
Unfortunately, our experience has been that VPC & CVI tactics further erode voter confidence at a time when the security of our elections is in the forefront. Please know that these organizations are in no way affiliated with my office and that there are reliable tools already in place for Pasco citizens to register to vote, update their voter registration, and to check their voter registration status. For the most accurate information regarding your voter registration:
