Supervisor of Elections warns of incoming mail

Supervisor of Elections Kim Barton warned Alachua County voters on Friday of potentially misleading information that could start arriving in mailboxes next week. 

In a press release, Barton said two Washington, D.C.-based nonprofits will again send voter information based on incorrect or out-of-date information that has led to past confusion and pre-filled voter registration applications for deceased persons, minors and pets.  

Barton said Supervisors of Elections from across Florida have asked the organizations, the Center for Voter Information and the Voter Participation Center, to stop sending the problematic mail.

However, the groups announced they would be sending more than 9,000 items to Alachua County. 

The release made clear that the two groups have no connection with the Supervisor of Elections Office and all official voter information, such as dates and voter registration confirmation, is stored on the Supervisor of Elections website.

For questions concerning the mail, Barton recommends contacting the organizations directly. Residents can also unsubscribe from future mail from the nonprofits. 

Residents with concerns about their voter registration can check their status online at or by calling 352-374-5252.
