Warning of Potentially Misleading Mailings

WALTON COUNTY SUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS WARNS OF POTENTIALLY MISLEADING MAILINGS

The Walton County Supervisor of Elections Office is warning citizens of Walton County about potentially misleading mailings they could be receiving form organizations not associated with the Walton County Supervisor of Elections or the Florida Division of Elections.

Historically these mail-outs often include Florida Voter Registration Applications or Vote-by-Mail (Absentee) Ballot Request Forms with information pre-filled and are sometimes addressed to misspelled or informal names, children under voting age, and deceased family members. These letters may also say a number of things including: - You are not registered to vote. - Your mailing address is incorrect. - Your voter information needs to be updated. - How do you compare with others? Our office has also become aware of some mailings that appear to be handwritten on postcards and ask you to support a particular candidate or political party. Often, these mailings may appear to come from other states as well. 

These mailings usually originate from third-party, non-government organizations such as the Voter Participation Center (VPC), the Center for Voter Information (CVI), and Postcards to Voters. Although these organizations do usually identify themselves on their documents and envelopes, they may appear to look official and use our office name, address, phone number, or email address. 
 
These organizations may generate address lists for these mailings from unverified, outdated, and often incorrect data, which can lead to confusion regarding eligibility for voting, especially among voters who are already registered. 

Walton County residents are urged to confirm or update their voter record by using the Supervisor of Elections website at VoteWalton.com, or call the Supervisor of Elections office at (850) 892-8112; and to not rely on the information printed on these mailed-out applications.
