GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Alachua County election officials say two Washington D.C. based non-profits are sending misleading information to voters.

The Center for Voter Information and The Voter Participation Center have announced plans to send more than 13,000 pieces of mail to Alachua County.

Election officials say the group’s previous mailings have confused and angered voters with incorrect or out-of-date information.

According to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections Office, the groups have sent pre-filled voter registration applications to dead people, children, and quote “even pets.”
