Voter registration forms sent are not from Broward Elections Office
BROWARD COUNTY, FL — In recent weeks, many Broward voters have contacted our office alarmed about a mailing they have received regarding their voter status. The opening statements of the letter indicate that the voter is not registered to vote in Broward County. The letter is sent from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) located in Washington D.C. Although the organization is well-intentioned in its support of voter registration, their mailings are misleading and often sent to voters who are deceased, or unknown at the listed addressed. Some voters have reported that letters have been addressed to a family pet, an incorrect use of names such as nicknames, or to adult children who no longer reside in the home.
We want to insure that voters are not confused by this unsolicited correspondence and that their concerns are addressed quickly.
Therefore, voters who receive the VPC letter are encouraged to contact the office of the Broward County Supervisor to verify their voter status on our website: www.browardsoe.org and click on My Status located on the main page.
New voter information cards will begin arriving at the homes of all Broward County voters by the end of this week. The new cards will reflect voter information based on the recent redistricting process. Voters should review all of their districts and numbers in that some may have changed. Voters are encouraged to review their personal information such as name, address, city and party affiliation. The full name of the political party has been included and is located to the right of the voter’s name.
If any information needs to be corrected or changed, voters are asked to contact the Supervisor of Elections’ office immediately at (954) 357-7050, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for name and party changes must be done in writing by Aug. 1, 2016, which is 29 days before the Aug. 30 primary election.
Voters are invited to visit www.browardsoe.org to review information on the upcoming election cycle which includes the primary election and the General Election scheduled for Nov. 8, 2016. All three methods of voting will be available in each election: vote-by mail, early voting and precinct voting on Election Day.
For additional questions or concerns, voters may call the main office of the Broward County Supervisor of Elections at (954) 357-7050 or contact the Voter Participation Center at (202) 659-9570.
Dr. Brenda Snipes, Supervisor of Elections.
