Statement from Pasco County Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley
Pasco County FL - Our office has received numerous calls and emails from voters who received what appears to be handwritten postcards encouraging voting by mail. Some of the mailers have included political statements endorsing the Democratic Party and include our office phone number and e-mail address.
Please know that these postcards are not from our office or any of its' employees. Official mail from the elections' office will have our return address clearly listed, and most mail will include the United States Postal Service's official election mail logo. We will never send mail or other communications endorsing one candidate or party over another.
As a matter of public record, voter lists can be requested by anyone, including people who do not live in Florida. Many of the mail pieces we have seen have out-of-state postmarks. Pasco County is not the only Florida county with voters who have received similar postcards.
Members of our team have been concerned by some callers' threatening tones. In our public service, we strive to be respectful and uphold high levels of customer service in all our interactions with the voters of Pasco County. We ask that others conduct themselves respectfully in return.
