Quick Action Steps to Protect Your 2022 Vote

  • Verify Voter Registration for Your Household

Send an email to your local Supervisor of Elections office asking them to verify your voter registration and that of those at your household. Tell them you want to make sure there are no former residents listed and, if requested, provide them with verification of the registered voters who currently live at your home or any properties you rent out or own, whether residential or commercial.

Some states allow voters to register to vote at their place of business, which could be in a different county than the county they reside in. If you are a business owner, make sure you only have one registration location on file for your vote and that there are no voters registered at your office or storefront.

Canvassers in multiple states found anomalies that suggest former residents cast a mail in or absentee ballot after moving away or even dying. These types of voters are commonly referred to as ghost voters. In addition, some residences reported having up to 40 people in a 2 bedroom apartment. Common sense dictates this is highly improbable.

In swing counties in Florida, which you would think would be one of the more secure states, a canvas of 14K voters revealed that only 62% were verifiable. This is why it is so important for each and every person to get involved and let your elections office know where you live and don’t live, and who you live with.  If you have moved from another state or county, contact that election office as well to make sure you are no longer on the voter rolls. 

  • Be sure to report Deceased or Disabled Friends and Relatives

If you know of someone who died recently, ask your elections office how you can report it. You may have to get in touch with their next of kin or the executor of their estate if it is your immediate relative. Delicately let those involved know that it is important to make sure their loved ones who have passed are no longer on the voter rolls either.

Similarly, if you have a relative or friend who is incapacitated or in a nursing facility, perhaps you will want to speak to those in charge to make certain that this person’s vote cannot be used inappropriately.
