Election Related Mailings from Outside Organizations

The City has no control over third party mailing and does not supply information to these groups.

Another round of voter registration applications from the Voter Participation Center (VPC) and the Center for Voter Information (CVI) will begin to arrive in mailboxes on March 17.

Several organizations send out mailings in an effort to increase voter participation. Mailings may include information regarding voter registration status, along with pre-filled absentee ballot and voter registration applications. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of any commercial data used by these organizations.  Please know that at any time you can check your voter registration status online. If you want to be removed from their mailing lists, their letter has a code near the bottom that they can email to VPC or CVI to be automatically removed (unsubscribe@voterparticipation.org and unsubscribe@centerforvoterinformation.org). Additionally, you can contact these organizations by their toll-free numbers: 877-255-6750 (VPC) and 866-290-1599 (CVI).
